Unai Emery on Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil: ‘My idea is to use every player and he is one’

Ozil & Arsenal

Mesut Ozil has been on Arsenal’s books for just over six years now.

In that time, Ozil has racked up 233 appearances for the Gunners, in which he has scored 43 and provided 74 assists.

However, in recent times, the German has found his game time with the north London outfit rather limited.

In fact, the 31-year-old has made just two appearances for Arsenal this campaign.

But, despite his playing time being on the decline, Ozil recently stated that he will be staying at Arsenal until at least 2021, when his current contract expires.

Emery on Ozil

Now, during a press conference on Thursday, Unai Emery has been speaking about Ozil, stating that his idea is to use every player in his squad, with Ozil being one of them:

“The last two or three weeks he’s improved with us training and I think it’s good. I didn’t close the possibility to play with him because if he is ready and giving us a good feeling every day in training, he can play.

“My idea is to use every player and he is one. He has very big skills and quality we will need in the next matches.

“I am happy how he is improving and training every day. I am feeling better with him every day.”
