Arsenal legend and former coach Freddie Ljungberg believes the club does not have an individual talent to replace Mesut Ozil.
As extensively reported here on Futaa, Ozil got frozen out of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal team this season, though his contract and big wages continues until the end of the season.
“When you have a player like that, and I don’t say he should play every single week, but when you have possession and you need to find that cute pass, I don’t think there are any better players than Mesut doing that,” Ljungberg told SkySports.
“Of course you lose a bit defensively, but it’s a decision they’ve made. I don’t know why the decision’s been made and he’s outside the 25-man squad, so they can’t use him.
“But for those things, I don’t think there are many better in the world,” adde the Swede.
