You Should Never Have Signed Mesut Ozil – Says Liverpool Legend Kenny Dalgish

Kenny-DalglishLiverpool legend Kenny Dalgish has questioned Arsenal’s signing of Mesut Ozil in the just concluded transfer window. Wenger signed the former Real Madrid player in a 42.5 million deal on the very last day of the transfer window. Kenny Dalgish in his daily mirror write up has questioned why Wenger has to spend 42.5 million on another midfielder when according to him there are other areas the team need signings in.

King Kenny wrote in the Mirror: “A couple of things about it interest me, though.

“The first is that, with Ozil, Arsene Wenger has ­strengthened a position where Arsenal were already strong.

“He has not addressed other positions you might have expected to be a bigger priority.

“Centre-back would be one of those and even though striker Olivier Giroud has started the season impressively, it would be better if there was someone else up there to give him competition or fill in if he gets injured.”

Although I personally believe there are other areas the team need signings in but I do not agree we have enough in the midfield. Yes, we have the likes of Jack, Arteta, Cazorla and the likes but we still struggle to create clear cut goal scoring opportunities which make signing Ozil very sensible.

  1. “King” Kenny needs to grow a brain. look at the huge mess he left at Liverpool. wasting a fortune on third rate players like stuart downing, Henderson et all. I suggest everyone ignores his garbage.

    agreed that arsenal needed to strengthen in the striker, holding mid and centre back areas. avenger tried but mourinho blocked the Ba loan. Newcastle refused to let cabaye go etc. arsenal have a fluid forward line and walcott could play up front and so could bendtner.

    wenger signed flamini and I have a feeling he could be a great signing. this is the strongest I have seen arsenals squad in many years. Ozil is probably in the top 3 number 10s in the world .
    arsenal are a stronger team with Ozil in the squad and King Kenny can go fcuk himself

  2. Ramblings of a has been who single handidly managed to run liverpool into the ground and waste tens of millions on useless players….. Kenny shut up

    Andy Carroll- £35m
    Charlie Adam- £7.5m
    Sebastian Coates- £7m
    Jordan Henderson- £20m
    Stewart Downing- £20m

    £87 on shit players

  3. you should have never signed carroll, downing,adam, coates etc and the list goes on. You don’t have any clue about modern day football Mr. Daglish (with all due respect to your acheivements)

  4. Ozil will play as a striker….Daglish is crazy….i remember when he dis-respected Arsenal a game with Liverpool……Bringing in ozil…means anyone at Arsenal can score…from Defenders…….you will be suprised how the tactics are gona be,,,,,i knew this before…..sounds alot of people were being hurted after Arsenal signed Ozil……no!….i think its about how Wenger out smarted everyone,,,,,including some Arsenal(hypocrite funs)……..Patience and Quality(sir Arsene wenger)

  5. He is right a stronger center foward was a priority till this good time Giroud has not convinced me that he will carry the scoring mantal at Arsenal to the end he has many near misses that need a killer striker.Ozil is a good attacking midfielder which is okey.
