Mourinho has passed on some of his Ozil expertise, explaining that Emery needs to find the balance between pushing the player hard but also showing a more gentle side when needed.
That’s a delicate balancing act and it may be that Emery simply doesn’t rate the 30-year-old enough to make him a regular part of his plans, but fans would probably rather see him back on the pitch soon for Arsenal after some unconvincing recent form.
