Mesut Ozil Is Pretty Rubbish Claims French Media


Mesut Özil was the victim of the French press following Arsenal’s victory over Marseille in the midweek. The media seemed to pick out the German to have had a poor game despite his billing of a superstar.

L’Equipe stated Özil had a ‘good start with a nice pass for Walcott but lacked power after that and pretty rubbish’. It seems they were still bitter from the loss despite Marseille enjoying more possession and shots on goal.

The Gunners only managed 45% possession and nine shots on goal compared to Marseille’s 55% and their 15 efforts however Arsenal proved to be more clinical and accurate with both teams managing seven shots on target with Marseille’s only goal coming from the penalty spot.

To pick out Özil’s performance seems a little childish taking in to consideration it was only his second appearance for the club and no Arsenal player really stood out. Marseille had most of the ball and so it was difficult for any of the visitors to really make an impression without scoring. The German may not have been at his best but he did more than enough to help the team.

The 24-year old could well make the L’Equipe eat their words when Marseille visit the Emirates, by which then Özil would have had a little bit longer to integrate with the team.

  1. True, Ozil make the best considering that it was just one week after joining the Gunners and played to that level with player never being with. May be because of super Par Mert and power Podolisk who plays together in the Germany national team. French media were bitter because they lost to our boys. By singling the new comer Ozil means he is a threat and world class that why he was always monitored with two to three defenders like wise to Giroud who was also tightly covered by two or three defender when is in the position to get the ball. they should now that Arsenal is a team of players who supports each other not a single palyer team. We dont relay on one player. look the number of injuries – About six of our best player were not there such as; Technician and Chief of operations, Mikel Arteta, super magician and ball juggler Santi Carzola, surgeon Tom Rosisky, power firing machine Lukas Podolsk and young killer Yaya Sanogo. If Carzola was fit Ozil could not make up, may be could have been used as backup (to give him experience). His performance proved him exceptional.
