Martin Keown suggests Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is faking an injury

first_imgMesut Ozil (Picture: Getty Images)Mesut Ozil might be feigning injury because he knew he wouldn’t be picked for Arsenal against Everton, claims Martin Keown.The German is out of the side with a foot injury, but interim manager Freddie Ljungberg confirmed that he would not have been selected anyway because of his actions in Arsenal’s last game against Manchester City.Ozil was substituted less than an hour into the clash with the Premier League champions and kicked his gloves along the touchline, before brushing past the hands of Ljungberg and assistant coach Per Mertesacker on the bench.The Swedish interim boss said ahead of the Everton clash: ‘Mesut has something on his foot. He wouldn’t have been in the squad anyway after what happened in the last game.’AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTKeown is not a fan of Ozil, describing him as an ‘issue’ that new manager Mikel Arteta will have to resolve, and has even suggested that his foot injury may not be real.‘He’s [Arteta] coming in in very difficult circumstances and Ozil is one of those issues, and Arteta has got to manage that,’ Keown told BT Sport.‘He went off the pitch against City and wasn’t best pleased, he didn’t look particularly injured on that occasion.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘He’s probably just taken himself out of it because he thinks that Freddie wouldn’t play him.’Ljungberg hinted that Ozil would be out of the side after 3-0 loss to Man City, saying he would ‘deal with’ the playmaker.‘For me I took Mesut off because I wanted some more energy in the team,’ Ljungberg told Sky Sports. ‘How he reacts is up to him and I’ll deal with it.‘We’ll see what it means for the future but of course we want players to behave the right way.’The 31-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Fenerbahce in the January transfer window, with a loan deal reportedly ‘very close’ to being completed.MORE: Freddie Ljungberg explains bizarre Arsenal team selection for Everton matchMORE: Mikel Arteta’s stern message to Per Mertesacker and Arsenal coaches after appointment Advertisement Comment Phil HaighSaturday 21 Dec 2019 1:01 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy linkcenter_img Martin Keown suggests Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is faking an injury Advertisementlast_img read more
