An advisor of Mesut Ozil has claimed he has "received positive signals" from the Metropolitan Police that his incident with a photographer will not be taken further.

The Arsenal star was reportedly questioned by police on Friday night following an accusation that he hit a photographer with his car.

No arrests were made but it was said that the investigation into events were continuing.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said at the time: "Police were called at approximately 7.18pm on Friday, February 21 to reports of an alleged collision between a vehicle and a member of the public in Sheldon Avenue N6.

"The member of the public, a man in his 30s, sustained minor injuries. Officers have spoken to the driver of the vehicle.''

However, Ozil's advisor Roland Eitel believes the German international has nothing to worry about and has confirmed details behind the alleged incident.

Eitel said: "When Mesut got home with a friend on Friday evening, several photographers were waiting at his front door."

"Mesut drove up the driveway, and he was chased by a photographer, who was hitting his car and destroyed his wing mirror," Eitel told Sport1.

The incident was the end to a terrible week for Ozil, who was widely criticised for his performance against Bayern Munich before missing out on the squad altogether against Sunderland.

Arsene Wenger blamed his absence on a dead leg but few would be surprised if that turned out to be a cover story for the player who clearly looked affected by the criticism he was receiving.
