Arsenal manager Unai Emery has said he has a “good relationship” with Mesut Ozil despite speculation of a rift between the duo.
Ozil missed Arsenal’s 3-1 win over West Ham United in Week 3 of the campaign, and speculation surfaced after that contest regarding a possible falling out. However, the German was back in the side for the 3-2 win over Cardiff City a week later.
When asked about the pair’s dynamic on Thursday, Emery said he has no issue with Ozil and he’s doing his best to improve him as a player, per Sky Sports.
“[We get on] very well,” said the former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain boss. “Here for me it isn’t for a lot of the time speaking about what people are telling us. I have a very good relationship with Mesut and professionally I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances.”
