Germany Team Boss Oliver Bierhoff, Says Arsenal Has Let Mesut Ozil Down
Oliver Bierhoff believes Mesut Ozil was unfairly made a scapegoat by Arsenal after their 5-1 mauling in the Champions League by Bayern Munich.
Arsenal’s hopes of advancing in Europe’s elite club competition are all but over the first-leg defeat. They started strongly and got an away goal through Alexis Sanchez but when Laurent Koscielny went off injured, Bayern took full advantage.
And Ozil, as well as manager Arsene Wenger, took a lot of criticism for the result which Germany team manager Bierhoff insists is unfair.
‘If I look at Ozil, who was singled out following the 5-1 loss to Bayern, in that match there was not much support for a player like Mesut, who lives on his footballing qualities,’ Bierhoff told Sport Bild.
