Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil says he is “deeply disappointed” after being left out of the Gunners’ 25-man Premier League squad.
Ozil, 32, who joined Arsenal for a then club record £42.4m in 2013, has not played for the club since 7 March.

The German, who had also been omitted from the Europa League squad, can now only play for Arsenal Under-23s until his deal expires in summer 2021.

In a message to Arsenal fans, he said “loyalty is hard to come by nowadays”.


“I’m really deeply disappointed by the fact that I have not been registered for the Premier League season for the time being,” Ozil wrote on social media.

“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.

“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.”
