Ozil apologize to Arsenal fans over bayern loss



The €50 million German failed to capitalise on a penalty
he won, stroking it tamely for Manuel Neuer to save,
before the Gunners were reduced to 10 men and
comfortably beaten 2-0
Mesut Ozil has issued an apology to Arsenal fans for his performance
in the 2-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
The German playmaker missed a penalty he had won in the early
stages before being used as an auxiliary defender on the left wing once
Wojciech Szczesny had been red-carded, with the former Real
Madrid man heavily criticised for a supposed lack of work rate.
Writing on his Facebook page, Ozil said: “The next morning doesn’t
feel better either. Sorry guys – it wasn’t planned that way.
Outnumbered it was really hard to win against this team.”
Arsenal began brightly at the Emirates Stadium, drawing Manuel
Neuer into a couple of important saves – including his parry from a
tame Ozil penalty. From there, Pep Guardiola’s side grew into the
match and dominated once they had the man advantage.
Although David Alaba missed a penalty for the Germans, goals from
Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller secured a commanding lead ahead of
the return leg in Munich.
As for Ozil, Wenger said: “I think it affected Mesut. He was still
shaking his head five or 10 minutes after that. It had a huge impact on
his performance.”
