Arsenal Midfielder maestro Mesut Ozil has been warned to regret his stay at the Emirates stadium with Alan Smith surprised about the midfielders’ decision to stay to complete his remaining 12 months contract at the Arsenal.
The 31-year-old has been on the bench for an extended period and has no intention of pushing for an exit from the club in the current transfer window.
He intends to run down his lucrative deal with the Gunners and leaving the club on a free transfer at the end of the 2020/21 season.
Mesut Ozil is unlikely to be included in competitive football if he is keen on his decision to stay at Arsenal with Smith urging the German to reconsider his decision, leaving Arsenal to be the best option for him.
“As for Mesut Ozil, the tiresome saga rolls on. In an interview this week, the German insisted he is staying at Arsenal even though he does not feature in Mikel Arteta’s pl, an” Alan Smith told Skysports.
“This is a funny one. Ozil is well within his right to see out four-year contract the club were happy enough to give, but from a purely football aspects, why would you do that if you are not going to play.
” ‘this is my profession he says, it’s what I love doing; being on the pitch, playing matches, showing the people, helping the club and my team’ .ok so if you love playing so much, why not going somewhere ure actually wanted?
“There’s an old saying in football; you are a long time retired, come the end of his career, he might live to regret these wasted years”.
