Mesut Ozil – I’m often the one blamed for Arsenal’s poor form

Mesut Ozil has lashed out at his critics, claiming to be the unfortunate scapegoat for Arsenal’s bad run in an interview with Sport Bild.

The 28-year-old German has come under scrutiny this season for an apparent lack of performances, with a large section of the Arsenal faithful demanding for him to be sold.

As compared to last season, Ozil only has a relatively low nine assists across all competitions, although he has managed to score as many goals too, making a decent season, even if average by his own high standards.

Quite a few have blamed him for the Gunners’ failed title challenge, something that hasn’t gone down well with the former Real Madrid Galactico.

“People know what I have achieved. That I am a World Cup winner, played for Real Madrid, set up 20 goals last season [in all competitions].”

“When the team’s on a bad run, somebody needs to be singled out, sadly most of the time it’s me.”
