The Football player has been considering renewing his contract with Arsenal, but before he does that, he wants to know if Arsene Wenger will stay for another season as well.
Ozil, who signed with arsenal in 2013, is really happy to be part of this team. He said that the fact the fans want him to be part of Arsenal means a lot to him. He still has 18 months left of the contract.
He says that his decision on remaining with the club is simply based on who is the manager. “The club knows that I am here most of all because of Arsène Wenger. He is the one who signed me and he is the one whose trust I have,” said the midfielder in his interview with a German magazine.
Some players believe Ozil is affecting the club with his wage demand. Thierry Henry said Ozil and Alexis Sanches both have high demands from the club. Mesut said that he does not care of other people’s opinions as long as they do not know what he and club have established.
Manager Arsene Wenger was asked whether Sanchez and Ozil will remain with the club until 2018, all he said was that “every club loses big players”. He also said that Arsenal is a big club and with or without two of its players, it will continue to be strong. All he appreciates right now is the “strong financial situation”.
As long as they will have the financial support, the club will have the future planned. Wenger wants the club to keep its identity and values in spite of everything.
