Arsenal came out 2-0 winners against Marseille on Tuesday night. Although the Gunners won, one sour moment in the game was Mesut Ozil’s penalty miss.
Arsene Wenger has spoken out about that miss and says that the German star’s run up was too short.
Wenger said: “Everyone can miss a penalty.
“His run up to the ball was short, but that’s the way he takes them.”
Wenger went on to say that maybe Ozil’s miss would be good for England as they always seem to get beaten by Germany when it comes down to a penalty shootout. Wenger joked, “That’s good news for England maybe.”
Ozil has received some stick from Arsenal fans over the last couple of weeks and this penalty miss will help fuel their concerns about the £42.5million star. But such criticism is unwarranted as Ozil is a star player for us and all great players, even Messi or Ronaldo go through periods when they are not playing well. So for all the fans getting onto Ozil’s back, you are wasting your time!
