Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to finally give an update on why he has not been featuring for the team over the past couple of weeks.
The former Real Madrid star received all sorts of criticism last season for failing to deliver consistent performances as Arsenal finished outside of the top four of the Premier League.
Ozil has shown glimpses of his quality on a few occasions this season, helping the Gunners put together what is now a 20-game unbeaten run.
However, the 30-year-old has been left out of the team in the past couple of games, prompting rumours that he is not on good terms with Unai Emery.
Even though the Arsenal manager has stated that Ozil’s absence is only due to a fitness concern, not everyone has chosen to believe Emery on the situation.
But to clear things up, Ozil himself has confirmed on social media that he is indeed working on recovering from an injury….
Still working hard to come back as soon as possible after my back injury. Special thanks to our fitness coach Shad Forsythe for the support every day ??? #YaGunnersYa ? #M1Ö #COYG @Arsenal pic.twitter.com/bsTlouxfNR
