Unai Emery criticized Mesut Ozil’s “attitude and commitment” during his time as head coach of Arsenal and says that the rest of the team did not want the German to be the captain.

Emery was fired in November after the club suffered the worst series since 1992 and was initially replaced with Freddie Ljungberg before Mikel Arteta was finally given the job.

Ozil rarely trusted him as a regular appetizer during Emery’s reign and made only one Premier League appearance in the first 10 games of the season, but his former boss insists he did his best to help him.

“I’ve talked a lot to Ozil,” said Emery The Guardian. “He must also be self-critical, analyze his attitude and his commitment.

“I tried with all my strength to help Ozil. During my career, talented players have reached their best level with me. I have always been positive, wanting him to play, to be involved.

“In the pre-season I told him that I wanted to help recover the best Ozil. I wanted a high level of participation and commitment in the dressing room. I respected him and thought he could help.

“He could have been a captain but the locker room didn’t want him to be. It’s not what I decided; that’s what the players decided. The captains are the ones who must continue to defend the team, the coach, the teammates . “

Emery: I wanted Zaha on Pepe

Emery also revealed that he invited Arsenal’s board to sign Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha on Nicolas Pepe last summer.

Arsenal failed to sign Zaha after Palace refused an offer of £ 40 million and refused to lower the asking price by £ 80 million. The Gunners then opted for Pepe, who joined the French club Lille for a £ 72 million commission.

“I said to them, ‘This is the player I know and want.’ I met Zaha and she wanted to come, “said Emery. “The club decided that Pepe was one for the future. I said,” Yes, but now we have to win and this guy wins games. “He beat us alone.

“It’s also true that it was expensive and Palace didn’t want to sell. There were a number of decisions that had repercussions.”

Mustafi: “Professor” Arteta joins the Arsenal team

Shkodran Mustafi says Mikel Arteta has all the members of the Arsenal team “on board” and believes that the club is destined for greatness under the guidance of their former player.

The Germany defender has reflected on the impact Arteta has had on the club since joining in December.

“He’s a bit like a professor,” says Mustafi Sky Sports News.

“He knows exactly where he wants the players to be when they are on the ball and how to react when he loses the ball. It is very special.

“When I pass, I usually focus only on where to be if we lose the ball, but he wants me to make an offensive contribution too. So we have to constantly make an option for the player on the ball.

“When you’re 28 and playing in different countries with other coaches, you think you know everything but then it came and there are things I had never known before.”
