The situation with Mesut Ozil at Arsenal has been a mystery to many as no convincing explanation has been given for his continued snub from games.

The German International has not played any competitive game for the North London club since last season and to make it worst, his name was missing from Mikel Arteta’s Europa League squad.

It is also feared that the former Real Madrid player will not play a single game for Arsenal again before he leaves in the coming summer window.

The only explanation given by the Spanish boss is that Mesut Ozil is being snubbed for technical reasons and that has not been satisfactory to the fans and pundits.

However, Martin Keown has revealed that Mesut Ozil is now a changed player as he is no longer the person that was known during the spell of former manager Arsene Wenger.

Martin Keown added that everything about Mesut Ozil changed immediately he was handed a whopping £350,000 weekly wage to make him the highest paid player of the club.

He stressed that Mesut Ozil seems to be in his comfort zone and cannot be accommodated forever.

From his body language, Mesut Ozil has proven that he does not care about his situation at the club.
