Mesut Ozil is back in the news again, drawing attention to himself in an unflattering light, but making the same statement again… he ain’t going nowhere.
He doubled down on his grim relationship with a dictator. He stated his love for Arsene. He reiterated that he’s training hard and wants to play.
So how did Unai respond? With a messaging approach as garbled as a hippy atop a London Underground train in Canning Town.
“But really the last two to three weeks he has improved with us in training,”
“I didn’t close to him the possibility to play. … My idea is to use all the players and he is one who can help us. He also has very big skills and quality we will need in the next matches.”
UNAI FFS MAKE UP YOUR MIND.
You either like him… or you hate him. This indecision on what you want from the player looks so bad. Worse than your assistant coach learning Spanish.
Leadership demands consistency.
Emery needs a PR strategist in his team. Every time Mesut talks to the press, he manages to persuade the people he’s the victim and he’s just out there trying to make a living at a club he loves.
It’s masterful… because Emery always caves. It’s clever, because the German’s army rises up and amplifies his victimhood.
I think we should offer a way back into the side for the German. We lack creativity, and as far as I can see, there’s been no benefit to his absence. We don’t create. We don’t defend well. We are one dimensional. The manager should find a way to extract some value from this mega deal he’s on. Worst case scenario… Mesut shames himself again. Best case, we unleash the front three with opportunities.
Short post today, can’t believe we’re a Monday game again.
See you in the comments. x
