Ozil has been Arsenal's standout performer this season.

Arsenal fans plead with Mesut Ozil to stay at the club

Published 2 Comments

Arsenal’s annual season collapse is happening again.

The Gunners were humbled at home to Watford in the FA Cup on Sunday and are likely to be dumped out of the Champions League on Wednesday as they trail Barcelona by 2-0 after the first-leg.

And after Leicester beat Newcastle 1-0, it meant that Arsene Wenger’s side trail the league leaders by 11 points - although they do have a game in hand.

Understandably Gooners are getting increasingly worried that this season’s lack of success will lead to their star players leaving in search of silverware.

Arsenal’s standout performer this campaign has undoubtedly been midfielder Mesut Ozil.

The German has registered an incredible 18 assists already in the Premier League, just two short of the record set by club legend Thierry Henry.

So, if you’re an Arsenal fan and you see Ozil leaving the Emirates in his car, what do you do?

Beg him not to leave the club, of course.

That’s what a handful of Arsenal supporters did following their crushing defeat against Watford.

It sounds like a loved one pleading with their partner not to walk out on them with some fans saying: “Don’t leave, we love you.”

They then attempt to start up an Ozil chant to keep the midfielder happy.

Watch the video below:

There has been very little speculation linking Ozil with a move away from north London so the fear from the fans is a little premature.

The club signed the world-class playmaker from Real Madrid in 2013 for a fee believed to be around £42.5 million.

Despite taking a little while to adapt to the pace of English football, he has shown his class during his three seasons at Arsenal and it’s understandable that Gooners are desperate to keep hold of him.

Even during their 2-1 FA Cup loss to Watford he produced some brilliant pieces of skill, including his back heel to assist Danny Welbeck’s late consolation.

Despite the 27-year-old’s brilliant season for Arsenal, his manager Arsene Wenger has called on him to emulate Henry in terms of goals as well as assists.

Ozil has only managed 19 goals in 108 appearances in all competitions since his arrival and the French boss wants more.

“It’s good that Mesut follows Thierry on the assists, I want him to follow him on the goals as well!” he told reporters.
