Obinwannem News Ex-Arsenal boss Wenger lauds Ozil on Fenerbahce move

Arsene Wenger, Former Arsenal manager, has eulogized Mesut Ozil after he secured a move away from the club.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says “Ozil will be missed by the Gunners despite not playing him at all in the last ten months.”

Mesut Ozil travelled to Turkey on Sunday to finalise his move to Fenerbahce after saying goodbye to his Arsenal team mates at the club’s training ground.

Ozil has played 184 matches in Arsenal, scored 33 Goals; and 54 assists

“Well, first of all, I would say you have the pleasure to announce a transfer like that in a period where you will not have many transfers,” Wenger said.

“And he will certainly be the biggest transfer of the January transfer window because the world of football is a bit quiet.

“But overall it’s fantastic news for Fenerbahce, who are in a strong position in the league, and I think he can be the piece of the puzzle that will make them even more of a threat to win the Turkish league.”

Wenger continued: “I had never had a conversation [with him] about Fenerbahce before because I wanted to keep Mesut Ozil at Arsenal!

“But I could always feel a strong Turkish link because I met the family, I met his agent, I met his father when I signed him.

“You could see that there is a strong attachment to Turkey and a big interest in the Turkish league.”
