Ian Wright sends message to Mesut Ozil after Arsenal blasted in social media statement

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has sent a message to Mesut Ozil after the player's social media statement on the club. The German World Cup winner has not played a single game for the Gunners this term, while ha has also been left out of the club's 25-man Premier League squad on Tuesday. It seems the attacker could have to sit on the sidelines until his contract expires at the end of the campaign. Ozil released a statement on Wednesday to share his disappointment with the club. He wrote on Twitter:
"This is a difficult message to write to the Arsenal fans that I've not played for over the past few years. "I'm really deeply disappointed by the fact that I've not been registered for the Premier League season for the time being. "Upon signing my new contract in 2018, I pledged my loyalty and allegiance to the club that I love, Arsenal, and it saddens me that this has not been reciprocated. "As I have just found out, loyalty is hard to come by nowadays. "I've always tried to remain positive from week to week that there's maybe a chance to get back in the squad soon again. That's why I kept silent so far. "Before the Coronavirus break I was really happy with the development under our new coach Mikel Arteta - we've been on a positive way I would say my performances were on a really good level. "But then things changed, again, and I was no longer allowed to play football for Arsenal. What else can I say? "London still feels like home, I still have many good friends in this team, and I still feel a strong connection with the fans of the club. "No matter what, I will keep fighting for my chance and not let my 8th season at Arsenal end like this. "I can promise you that this hard decision won't change anything in my mindset - I will continue to train as best as I can and wherever possible use my voice against inhumanity and for justice."
And Wright took to social media to react, admitting he is "sad" about Ozil's situation at the club. "Football will never stop surprising me," he tweeted. "The fact that whatever has gone on couldn't be resolved between the club & Mesut is sad. "Sad for everyone involved and I can only send him strength for what will be a difficult few months knowing he won't even have a chance to play. Gutted."
