Ozil has 'respect of every player,' says Arsenal boss

Ozil ramsey

"Mesut has the respect of every player here", said Emery, who was appointed as Arsene Wenger's successor in May.

"He is a very important player and we want him to perform and feel comfortable".

Ozil released a three-page statement on social media hitting out at the perceived "racism and disrespect" of his Turkish heritage he has received in Germany from the media, ex-players, and the German FA following the controversial photograph taken with Turkish president Recep Erdogan in May.

Ozil joined the Arsenal squad in Singapore for pre-season training, before they face Atletico Madrid in a friendly on Thursday.

Hoeness has sparked some anger across Europe after lambasting the Arsenal midfielder over his decision to retire from the German national team.

'I respect everybody and their opinions, but we are professionals and we need to understand everyone but work for us and to be together.

"Everybody at the club is thinking like me to help him and to feel (good) here and express his quality with us".

The former Real Madrid man claimed the DFB and senior figures in German football had not done enough to protect him following Joachim Loew's side's group-stage exit, suggesting he had been made a scapegoat due to his background, even stating: "If we win, I'm German". We know the football [world] around us is about opinion and critique, we have a mentality and quality to work away from this opinion.

Away from the pitch, then, all seems to be as it was and Ozil will surely be buoyed by the support in his disagreement with the German FA, which has "emphatically rejected" his allegations of racism. He's played at global level, and he's a key player for us so yes he's one of the candidates. "They are great teams with great players, it's a test for us to get ready for the new season, so it's something to look forward to".
