Former Premier League player Paul Ince has given the reason behind the poor form shown by Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil at the club since manager Unai Emery was appointed.
The footballer turned pundit believes that the recently retired German international has not been the same player for the Gunners since the January exit of Alexis Sanchez.
The Manchester United legend said that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez enjoyed a telepathic understanding on the pitch while they played together for the Gunners.
The former Blackburn Rovers manager spoke about Ozil’s situation at Arsenal while he was on BBC Radio 5 Live.
Alexis Sanchez left Arsenal for top four rivals Manchester United in the last January transfer window earlier this year.
The Chilean joined the Red Devils in a swap deal involving Armenian international Henrikh Mkhitaryan who’s now an Arsenal player.
Mesut Ozil is in the spotlight following his struggles under the new Arsenal manager Unai Emery.
He has been dropped from the Arsenal squad on numerous occasions by the Spanish tactician.
The 2014 World Cup winner was surprisingly left out of the starting XI against South Coast club Bournemouth just before he got injured.
Ozil, 30, was then dropped from the Arsenal squad for the North London clash with Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals on his return from injury.
