Emirates Stadium manager defends record signing.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has moved to support under-fire German Mesut Ozil by insisting that the best is yet to come according to the Metro.
The World Cup winner is currently sidelined with a knee injury and had come in for a fair bit of criticism prior to that though Wenger is keen to back-up Arsenal’s record signing.
‘He [Ozil] will not be back until January. He came back from the World Cup with an injury,’ Wenger told beIN Sport.
‘He had a very good first season with us. I think we will see the best of Ozil in the seasons to come,’ he said.
Indeed Ozil’s first campaign at the north London side was relatively successful, the former Real Madrid man racking up seven goals and 14 assists in all competitions, one imagines that was more expected from a player who cost £42.5m.
