Unai Emery’s decision to leave Mesut Ozil out of a third consecutive matchday squad is proof the midfielder’s Arsenal career is OVER, Gunners icon Ray Parlour believes.
Ozil has made just two appearances this season, starting against Watford and Nottingham Forest last month, as he deals with being a rotation player under Spanish coach Emery.
A lack of game time could be attributed to several factors, and the true worry for Ozil is the fact Emery seems to not trust him enough to include him in matchday squads.
In fact, missing the Europa League rout of Liege was a real statement of Ozil’s position in Emery’s squad given the starting XI was comprised of multiple youngsters playing in positions the German could have taken up.
But Emery favoured the likes of Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock and Ainsley Maitland-Niles ahead of him, and Parlour believes this proves Ozil has no future in north London.
Not that the ex-Gunner disagrees with Emery, however, saying the youngsters are only being given opportunities ahead of Ozil because they merit them.
