Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has said he doesn’t care about the criticism he receives.

He acknowledged that he splits opinion among the footballing public, but he said the only criticism he cares about is what comes from his “inner circle” and not from other people, per the Daily Mail‘s Sami Mokbel:

“Look, I know there’s people out there that like me, there are also people who don’t like me. This is a fact of life. But, for me, what is important is what the people in my inner circle tell me. I don’t care what people say outside of that. It doesn’t affect me.

“If the coach, or people in my circle, tell me: ‘Mesut you have to do this, or have to do that,’ then I listen. I’ll take that and work on it. But I don’t look at what someone else is saying. It really doesn’t affect me.”
