Arteta had said last month that Arsenal are evolving and that Ozil would find it difficult to find a place in the squad
Arsenal’s out-of-favor playmaker Mesut Ozil said his loyalty to the north London club was not reciprocated after he was left out of their Premier League squad for the 2020-21 season.
Ozil, who is under contract with Arsenal until June 2021 and earns a reported 350,000 pounds ($456,645) per week, has not played for manager Mikel Arteta’s side this season.
The German playmaker, who last played for the Gunners in March, was also axed from their Europa League squad earlier this month.
Ozil said he was happy with his performance and the team’s development under manager Arteta before the Covid-19 shutdown in March, but things changed after the season resumed in June with the 33-year old not playing any games since.
Arteta had said last month that Arsenal are “evolving” and that Ozil would find it difficult to find a place in the squad, casting doubts over his future at the club.
