Arsenal former coach Arsene Wenger said Özil may have gotten too comfortable at Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger spoke about his former player at the Laureus World Sports Awards, he said Özil has gotten too comfortable at Arsenal.
He said, “I feel that the length of the contract has nothing to do normally with the selection of the team. But sometimes there are special cases. Most of the time now we think when we sign a player for five years, we have a good player for five years. But that does not necessarily mean that they practice, they play their best. Because they might be in their comfort zone.”
Further, Arsene Wenger said that Arsenal would need to spend in the region of €100 million if they wanted to bring a player of Özil’s class to the club. Moreover, he uttered, “So the decision you have to make is whether you re-sign the player, who costs us nothing, or do we have the money to buy a new player?”
