Mari underwent surgery on his ankle and carried out successful rehabilitation work at the Recover medical centre in Cambrils which allowed Arsenal to push forward the timescale of his recovery. Mustafi underwent a minor medical procedure in the immediate aftermath of the injury, which Arteta confirmed was a pull to the “tendon of the bone of his hamstring”. But whilst Caglar Soyuncu and Timothy Castagne, who was forced into the back-three following Jonny Evans’ early withdrawal, were brilliant, it was Frenchman Wesley Fofana that stood out head and shoulders above the rest. Even so I would imagine that among that group who would still rather sign him, he would be an incredible source of frustration, or a victim of managers/owners’ whims – take your pick. Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats. Things might not have worked out towards the end of your time at Arsenal, but the true fans will be grateful for what you did at our club. ANKARA (Reuters) – Fenerbahce are signing 32-year-old German midfielder Mesut Ozil, who is set to end his eight-year spell at Premier League side Arsenal, the Turkish club announced on Sunday.
“I am a Fenerbahce fan. As Arsenal Fan TV founder Robbie Lyle begins asking a fan a question about Ozil, a man comes up and rips the microphone from his hand. — UFF – ⚽️Ultimate Football Fan? Whatever happens, we have all allowed football to fix us this last month, at least for a while. His form has generally declined dramatically in the last year or two. Two of the members of his dream team are his German teammates Phillip Lahm and Jerome Boateng and one from Arsenal – Santi Cazorla. Blues secure Champions League football for next season, so he would bring value to the side, but the big question is whether Arsenal truly need the Brazilian? Adidas’ infamous three-brand logo has been synonymous with football fashion for decades. The shirt will be predominantly yellow with navy, and the Adidas logo and trims will be red. The number eight shirt is available after Dani Ceballos’s return to Real Madrid. Over the past few seasons, the No. 10 shirt at Arsenal has been worn by players including Jack Wilshere, Robin van Persie, William Gallas and the legendary Dennis Bergkamp.
The Gunners’ faithful are over the moon at the news considering fellow Premier League side Aston Villa were interested in signing the silky playmaker. He has come out of nowhere to dominate the Best League In The World. Of course he didn’t come from nowhere but that’s what the Premier League supremacists would have you believe. The Premier League isn’t for wallflowers and Vieira was a warrior, which you could never accuse Ozil of. The numbers were unbelievably high and consistent that everyone was convinced he wouldn’t be able to replicate it in the toughest league in the world. I don’t know. I just came across some numbers that amazed me, that’s all. “Mesut came from a very poor background, with his mum doing two cleaning jobs a day. Although he joined two years ago, he spent the first season at French outfit Saint-Etienne, the club he had joined Arsenal from, on loan. Ozil has been hands down, the most skillful (not the best) player Arsenal has had in years.
Ozil spent seven years at Arsenal and leaves as a four-time FA Cup winner. The playmaker will receive no money for the rest of this season and then for the remaining three years on his contract he will get £2.6million a year. He will be given a total of €9million (£8million) for three years. Ozil joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013 for what was then a club-record fee of £42m and has helped the club win the FA Cup three times. The XI which Ozil revealed during a Twitter Q&A comprises teammates from his former club Real Madrid, national team Germany and, Arsenal. And, not only that, but you will get exclusive content from our club writers Chris Wheatley and Kaya Kaynak before anyone else. “Tonight I will come to Istanbul with my family. How did it come to this? If I were generous, I could say that Arsenal (even Wenger) never got the best out of Ozil.
