The international break is always a time of great anxiety for managers. Their best players go on to represent their countries at the risk of returning with great fatigue or even season-ending injury. Seamus Coleman comes to mind immediately due to his horrific double leg break while playing for the Republic of Ireland.
Thankfully for Arsenal fans, Mesut Ozil was able to escape unscathed from a rather routine victory for Germany over Azerbaijan. The playmaker confirmed his return to England with a Snapchat post and supporters who were concerned about injury rumours would be pleased with Ozil’s involvement in the World Cup Qualifying game.
While his player seems to be pleased with returning, there is still great unease over his future at the Emirates. With contract extension talks now slated for the summer, the Gunners’ faithful would be hoping that Ozil continues to return to London post-international duty and not elsewhere.
