Arsenal star Ozil fires back at critics: ‘I don’t care’

7 days ago, 18:45

By: Matthew Stead

Mesut Ozil insists he is unfazed by constant criticism at Arsenal.

Ozil has regularly been lambasted by pundits since he joined Arsenal in summer 2013, with Graeme Souness recently questioning his lack of passion.

The decision to give him a new long-term contract was described as ‘catastrophic’ earlier this year, while Ozil’s agent blasted Martin Keown for criticising his client in May.

But the German, who has also faced intense scrutiny within his own country, leading in part to his international retirement due to perceived racism, says he is unperturbed.

“Look, I know there’s people out there that like me, there are also people who don’t like me,” Ozil told Daily Mail.

“This is a fact of life. But, for me, what is important is what the people in my inner circle tell me.

“I don’t care what people say outside of that. It doesn’t affect me.

“If the coach, or people in my circle, tell me: ‘Mesut you have to do this, or have to do that’ then I listen. I’ll take that and work on it.

“But I don’t look at what someone else is saying. It really doesn’t affect me.”
