Arsenal legend reveals why Mesut Ozil and Unai Emery do not see eye to eye

Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit believes Mesut Ozil’s lack of motivation is behind his struggles under Unai Emery at Arsenal.

Ozil missed his 100th game for the Gunners on Thursday after being left out of the squad that suffered a 1-0 loss to BATE Borisov in the Europa League.

“I have huge respect for Ozil but the Ozil I used to watch years ago, he was one of the best attacking midfield players in the world, he was a pleasure to watch,” Petit told the Mirror

“Now it’s not even a pleasure or a desire to see him in the team because he’s lost it.

“Ozil is a big player but he’s not a big personality. He never talks. Sometimes I think he’s a ghost on the pitch. He never says anything to his team-mates. He never shows any emotion.
