ARSENAL - Wenger has backed Mesut Ozil to respond to the criticism

24.12.2016 09.15 by Chiara Biondini  read 932

Arsene Wenger has backed Mesut Ozil to respond to the criticism he faced after Arsenal's 2-1 loss to Manchester City and defended the playmaker's work rate off the ball.

"To be absolutely fair I did not hear or listen to all the criticism we got after the game," Wenger said at his news conference ahead of Monday's game against West Bromwich Albion. "But we have to accept that. We have to live with that. People analyse and have their opinion. And I think that's normal, and we have to respond. Mesut Ozil is an important player, he's a big player, and the big players always respond to criticism on the pitch. I don't give him any leeway when the team doesn't have possession, he has to do his job like everybody else," Wenger said. "And usually he does it well. Of course his main strength is when you have the ball. He suffers more when you don't have the ball. And at City, he suffered more than others because we had not the ball enough. But unfortunately if you want the ball you have to win it back."
