Mikel Arteta has ruled on the decision to let Mesut Özil go from Arsenal, despite the fact that he had six more months of contract with the Gunners. The German footballer, already in the ranks of Fenerbahce, has barely counted for the San Sebastian coach in his time at the Emirates Stadium. The final straw came at the beginning of this season, when Özil was not even inscribed on the Premier League list: "A player with his importance who is not playing, and who is not in the squad, is a very difficult for both parties to sustain, "acknowledged Arteta.

In addition, he wanted to give his version of events. The possibility of betting on other young homegrown players such as Saka or Smith Rowe have taken minutes away from more contrasted players such as Özil or Willian, as Arteta explains: "He is a great player, a very talented one, and above all one who has done a lot for this football club. But right now I want to go in a different direction and he will have more options elsewhere. "

And he concluded: "If a footballer wants to play and we cannot offer him minutes, that situation has to be resolved" .
