It’s usually some former Arsenal player who tells the club every now and then to buy better players than the ones they already have, but this time the same… request came from a member of today’s roster, and not just any member…
I think the club know they need to strengthen. But what is most important is the manager’s opinion. He and the club will make the decision
Mesut Ozil told the Daily Mail, mentioning other big European clubs to back his argument.
When you look at our squad, it is not as broad as Bayern Munich’s or Real Madrid’s. In the Champions League, that is not enough, especially against big teams, because they have more breadth in their squad
the German midfielder said, before admitting that what the club do with Arsene Wenger will play a big role in his own decision to sign a new contract with Arsenal or not.
Wenger is not just important for me but for the whole club. It is important to know if he stays or if he goes. We need to think towards next season. He is very important. In my career I have always made decisions not just because of clubs but managers, too. As a footballer, it is important to have the manager’s trust and believe they can develop you
Ozil said, avoiding, once again, to commit himself long-term to the club, not before he sees what happens this summer.
