Arsene Wenger has slammed Mesut Ozil for his recent comments during the international break. The German international recently claimed the Gunners screwed up the chance to win the title, insisting the Gunners lost the chance to win the league against small teams.
The comments didn’t go down too well with Wenger who revealed he was angry with the midfielder’s comments. Wenger believe the Gunners still have the chance to win the title until it is mathematically impossible.
“The statement is not welcome, I agree with you,” he told reporters at Friday’s press conference, as quoted by goal.
“Because we have to believe, no matter if it is just one chance in 100, we have to believe. We only have a real chance if we believe.
Wenger also revealed he would talk with Ozil personally over the comments but stressed he had no problem with the German.
“I will make sure they don’t feel that. We will talk (with Ozil) about that. Yes, of course. I have nothing against players being honest. You want to be fair and honest. But you want as a well to look forward,” he pointed out.
“I think the worst thing in life is to have wrong beliefs. So you have to make sure that you give absolutely your best, and at the end accept that if somebody is better than you, that you have given your best.
“The worst thing for us would be not to believe, and then if we had a good run it was available, possible. I believe that we have to make sure that we play with passion until the end. That is the best way to get the supporters behind us.
“The stress becomes bigger but Leicester are in a very strong position at the moment. They can still lose it. The only way we can achieve that is with us performing.”
