Mesut Ozil 'can do more' for Arsenal, says Unai Emery

Mesut Ozil 'can do more' for Arsenal, says Unai Emery

We will try to set a team up that can win with the tactics, and that's what I have to do.

Ozil has become a bit of a conundrum for Emery after the club's highest-paid player got off to a slow start to the season, which was also interrupted by an illness that fuelled rumours of a rift between the two.

Unai Emery has admitted that Mesut Ozil still has the capacity to improve and has called on the Arsenal midfielder to become more dominant in matches.

Following defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea to start the season, Arsenal made it back-to-back wins by seeing off West Ham and then Cardiff City 3-2 before the worldwide break.

The retired Germany global was back for the 3-2 win against Cardiff City a fortnight ago, but he again failed to last the full 90 minutes in South Wales.




We will see what happens but I feel good.

With Ozil having retired from global football, Emery has had a prolonged opportunity to work with his highest-profile and best-paid player over this past fortnight and is adamant that they do have a strong relationship.

"He had a relaxing three days off at the weekend. Mesut, I look at him with the focus totally here".

"I can say that I am very happy with him because he is 32 years old but I think physically, with his performances with us in matches, he is playing with a very good level". After six years here, I came and I know him as a new Nacho Monreal, ' Emery told reporters on Thursday.

@SimonBrotherton: Newcastle won the last meeting between the sides 2-1 at St James' Park in April, and the way Arsenal have started the season, you'd think the Magpies are likely to have some chances here.
