Mesut Ozil claims to be waiting for clarity on the future of embattled Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger before re-committing to the club, the Germany playmaker indicated in a newspaper interview on Sunday.
Ozil is as of now slowing down over another agreement, with his current deal due to expire in a year and recent efforts on both Ozil and the club’s part to finalise another deal have been unsuccessful, and proposed he won’t settle on decision on his future yet until he knows of Wenger plan with the club.
Taking a time of serious speculation and intense pressure over Wenger’s particular future with the Gunners, Ozil has indicated that his dedication may lie more with the Frenchman than with the club.
“It’s not just important for me, but for the whole club,” Ozil told the Mail on Sunday. “It’s important to know if he stays or if he goes. We need to think towards next season.
“He’s very important. In my career, I’ve always made decisions not just because of clubs, but managers too.
“As a footballer, it’s important to have the manager’s trust and believe they can develop you.
“When I went from (Real) Madrid to Arsenal, I came for him because I told him at the time he’d be my first option. That was the case. We still have a super understanding today.
