Kolasinac: Ozil silenced all the critics
Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac believes that playmaker Mesut Ozil silenced his critics with his brilliant game against Burnley.
Last Saturday, Ozil appeared in the Gunners’ starting line-up for the Premier League match for the first time in the last six weeks. It was rumoured during that period that the 30-year-old German had been subjected to disgrace of head coach Unai Emery and could leave the club in January.
Mesut came on the field with the captain’s armband against the Clarets, showed excellent football and contributed to an impressive victory with the score of 3:1. Kolasinac was pleased with how his partner responded to all that negative in his address.
Sead said that it was a common thing for such a big player as Mesut. If a top-player performs a little worse than usual, then it immediately causes a huge amount of criticism in his address. Nevertheless, all the players are supporting Mesut and try to ignore loud headlines.
Life isn’t always good and there are a lot of bad moments. It happens when you have a series of injuries or you can’t get into good shape, it is always hard. Nevertheless, Mesut silenced some critics with his Saturday’s game.
