Mesut Ozil tells Arsenal fans: I tried my best

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has told fans that he tried his best during Tuesday night's Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, before insisting that he will return even stronger after his latest injury setback.

The 25-year-old will miss the next few weeks with the hamstring injury which led to his half-time substitution against the European champions. However, Ozil has confirmed that he suffered the injury just two minutes into the match.

"dear friends, now it's clear: during the #ucl match against #FCBayern I suffered a muscle injury in the second minute," he wrote on his official Facebook account. "I tried to give my best and played until the end of the first half. rest assured that I'll be back even stronger!"

The Germany international was heavily criticised for his below-par displays in both of the Champions League last 16 legs against Bayern Munich - and, following Tuesday night's match, he was even accused by one national newspaper of "stealing a living".

Ozil's Arsenal career started promisingly, but the £42.5m ex-Real Madrid star has struggled to produce his best form in recent months, leading some in Germany to claim that he no longer deserves a place in the Germany squad for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

However, the attacking midfielder will almost certainly be part of Joachim Low's 23-man squad for the showpiece international tournament this summer.
