“We live in an environment where we have to deal with the news, and the players and I have only always one response, which is what’s happening on the football pitch,”
“When you see Mesut on the football pitch like he is today, enjoying his game like he is today, it’s difficult to believe these kinds of things.
“He was superb. Agile, quick, intelligent. Always at the service of the team with his quality of his passing and when he is at that level, he is an exceptional football player.” – he told reporters.
Ozil netted one and set up another in Arsenal’s 5-2 win against Everton, helping his side to climb back up to the fifth spot in the Premier League table.
