Ozil, 32, is under contract with Arsenal until June 2021 and earns 350,000 pounds per week

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says he is hurt by Mesut Ozil's situation at the Premier League club but is resigned to facing questions about the German midfielder after every defeat. 

Ozil, 32, who is under contract with Arsenal until June 2021 earns a reported 350,000 pounds ($452,830) per week, but has not played for Arteta’s side this season after being left out of the 25-man Premier League squad.

The playmaker, who last played for Arsenal in March, was also left out of their Europa League squad, leaving him only eligible for U-23 games. 

Arteta said this in an interview with beIN SPORTS.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had said last month that his team are "evolving" and that the German midfielder will find it difficult to break into the squad, casting doubts over his future at the club

Ozil's high-profile absence continues to be a major talking point around the club and Arteta said he was resigned to having to deal with the issue.

Arteta has previously said that Ozil's situation is a "football decision" and that he has failed to get the best out of him but he accepted that some will find his absence difficult to accept.

Arsenal, who are 11th in the league, six points off leader Leicester City, visit Leeds United in the Premier League Sunday.
