Mesut Ozil can be ‘one of the worst players in the world’, according to Arsenal icon Merson

‘If he hasn’t got the ball he’s one of the worst players in the world!’: Mesut Ozil has to leave Arsenal for a ‘majorly successful team’, according to Paul Merson, as he slams their decision to give him a £350,000-a-week deal

  • Mesut Ozil has not played a single minute since Arsenal returned to action 
  • Paul Merson says Ozil has to play for a successful side to impress on the pitch
  • He also said Ozil would not win the ball back for his side ‘for love nor money’ 

Paul Merson has claimed Mesut Ozil is ‘one of the worst players in the world’ when he doesn’t have the ball.

The Arsenal midfielder has dropped out of Mikel Arteta’s starting line-up – and at Manchester City, the squad – since the Premier League restarted after the coronavirus pause.

He has also not been used in either of their matches against Brighton or Southampton, and didn’t make the squad as they beat Sheffield United 2-1 in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
