Emery insists Ozil has the ‘characteristics’ to succeed under him at Arsenal

Arsenal manager Unai Emery insists Mesut Ozil still has a future at the club, despite omitting the playmaker from his side in recent weeks.

The 30-year-old has found himself on the periphery at The Emirates, having not started in the league since the draw with Wolves on November 11th.

The German has been linked with a January loan move to Inter Milan, but Emery insists Ozil has a role to play.

‘Every player wants to play and be okay to help the team when we need. The frustration is the same for everybody when they didn’t play in a match.’ Emery told a press conference ahead of his sides clash against Burnley at the Emirates today.

‘But I spoke with him and with the regularity in the season, I am telling him what we need from him and he has the commitment to help us and the quality and the characteristics to help us when the team needs his moments in the pitch in one game. Tomorrow he is in the 18 players, in the squad.’
