Despite coming under heavy criticism for his below par performances, you cannot but love Mesut Ozil for his calmness and humility.
The Germany international was criticised by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry for holding out on a bumper pay rise before he commits to signing a new deal.
Speaking on Sky Sports before Christmas, Henry said both Sanchez and Ozil were holding the club “hostage” over their wage demands.
But Ozil said the club’s all-time record goalscorer does not know enough about the situation to be able to comment.
“Everyone has the right to say their views,” he said.
“But these comments don’t interest me. Such former players or other people who weigh in with their opinions don’t know what’s actually being said between the club and me.”
Wenger has said he does not want to discuss his own future until towards the end of the campaign and has insisted he will not let Ozil and Sanchez leave before their contracts expire, even if they end up going for free.
