    Rio Ferdinand baffled by Arsenal’s decision to get rid of Mesut Ozil

    Former England captain Rio Ferdinand claims Arsenal’s decision to offload Mesut Ozil ‘doesn’t make sense’.

    The German is expected to leave the Gunners this month, with Ozil currently considering offers from Fenerbahce and DC United.

    Ozil hasn’t featured for the club since last March and was left out of this season’s Premier League squad by Mikel Arteta, despite being the club’s top earner on £350,000-a-week.

    The German’s absence has baffled many onlookers, particularly as Arsenal have looked so void of creativity in attacking areas for much of the campaign.

    It is clear that Arteta sees no future for Ozil at the club but the reasons for him feeling that way have never materialised.

    The German was desperate to stay at the Emirates but with his contract running out in the summer, he sees no option but to depart.

    And Ferdinand admits the manner of Ozil’s exit is baffling as the German possesses ‘unbelievable’ quality.

    Asked how he would have handled the situation, Ferdinand told the FIVE YouTube channel: ‘If I was Mikel Arteta I would have gone in and assessed the situation. Why hasn’t he played previously? Speak to Mesut.

    ‘And then it’s all about how he applies himself on the training pitch. I’d ask him how it was in the last regime but then I’d give him a clean slate and say, “Right, you go out there and do the work for me. Work on the training pitch and then I see it playing out in the 90 minutes at the Emirates and all the grounds, then we’ll have a great time together”, that’s the way I’d have approached it.

    ‘The problem is with this whole situation, whether you’re an Arsenal fan or someone looking in as a football fan, we haven’t really been given any insights about how the situation has got to where it has got to.

    ‘Mesut Ozil is a World Cup winner, a player who played at Madrid and was fantastic there, done some great things at Arsenal. But he’s spending more time sitting on Twitter and Instagram talking about his team and the young players and sending out funny messages than he is kicking a ball and it doesn’t make sense to me.

    ‘And I want to know the reasons why, like everybody else. Why is he not playing? The kid’s talent is unbelievable. Cristiano Ronaldo was devastated when he left Real Madrid because he was the man who was putting chances on a plate more than anyone for him.

    ‘If I was a manager, it’s about clarity and consistency with messaging. Don’t leave any grey areas for people like us to keep debating about it and asking questions.

    ‘Come out in your first press conference or whenever that time is and say, “Listen, he ain’t for me. This kid ain’t for me! He was a great player in the past but he ain’t the same player who I saw years ago and he ain’t good enough to wear this shirt”.

    ‘So he can either sit in the background and be quiet and train on his own or get his agent to find him a new club. That clarity I think dispels and takes away so much of the grey areas and the debates and the conversations that go around. Because what it all does is it destabilises the club in the end.’
