Former Chelsea midfielder and ESPN pundit Craig Burley recently came down hard at Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil. He went on to claim that if the new manager Unai Emery isn’t able to drop the German superstar, he can go on to lose his job. The German midfielder started the two games in which Arsenal suffered defeats and he was substituted in both the games before the 90th-minute mark.
Burley was quoted as saying,”Unai Emery has inherited a £300,000-a-week nightmare. He took him off [vs Chelsea] for a reason. You’re a man down without the ball and then when you have the ball, he doesn’t do enough. At time he does it, at times he will do something brilliant.”
He further added,”You play him wide, he doesn’t track back. You play him in the middle, in the hole, he doesn’t go and press the deep-lying midfielder.”
The German is enduring a tough time after the World Cup and the Gunners faithful are also starting to lose hope in him.
The German has almost always divided the footballing fraternity as many consider him as a liability for the most parts of the game. Unai Emery had him tracking back in the game against Manchester City but one could make out that he wasn’t too comfortable in doing that and often he was coming as second best in his duels.
Emery will be looking to stamp an authority on this side and the experienced playmaker will have to stand up for his team and for himself to showcase the world his abilities. He is still just 29, so there is a good amount of football remaining in him and for Arsenal to come close to qualify for the top 4, they need to have the German to fire on all cylinders.
