Arsenal manager Unai Emery has vowed to help Mesut Ozil after the much publicised fall out from his decision to quit international football with Germany.
The 29-year-old playmaker decided to cut short his summer holiday and join up with his Gunners team-mates for pre-season training, and Emery reckons the former Real Madrid man will have a big impact at the Emirates during the upcoming campaign.
“All of us want to help Mesut feel like it is his home here with us, like a family and it is a family for every player.
“He feels here with us that he can work every day, and it is good for us that he decided to come here and work with us before our two matches.”
“He arrived on Sunday to travel and I prefer to give him the normality in the team and for him to feel good with us,” said the Spanish coach, who is backing Ozil to respond brightly to any negative fallout.
“He has experience, he has quality and he has a great mentality and we are going to help him feel good and to show his quality with us. I am sure he is going to have a big season with us.
“I am very happy with him, every player is looking together and Mesut has the respect of every player here. It is a personal decision from Mesut and I respect it.”
