Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has revealed that star midfielder Mesut Ozil still remains a leader in the team despite his antics during the Premier League clash at Everton.
French international Lacazette talked about Mesut Ozil during his pre-match thoughts ahead of the Europa League meeting with Napoli on Thursday night.
The Gunners host Napoli at the Emirates Stadium in what’s the first leg of their quarterfinal tie in the competition before the return leg next week Thursday.
Mesut Ozil has come under some form of criticism after he threw his coat in the direction of the Everton dugout during the league game at the Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.
The incident happened while the Everton and the Arsenal technical benches squared up to themselves over a foul by Gunners defender Shkrodan Mustafi on Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Mesut Ozil had just been substituted for Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi.
The German played 74 minutes of the game before making way for Nigerian international Iwobi as Everton secured a third straight win in the Premier League with a 1-0 home victory over the Gunners.
Everton played well against Arsenal and could have scored more as the Gunners’ hopes of making the Premier League top four at the end of the season.
