Wenger: Ozil ‘out for weeks’ with hamstring


Mesut Ozil’s rollercoaster few weeks continues with reports surfacing from the Allianz Arena that the German has sustained a serious hamstring problem.

The midfielder wasn’t at his best in the first half of this evening’s 1-1 draw in Munich and was substituted at half-time in favour of Tomas Rosicky after treatment in the break.

Speaking after the game Arsene Wenger remarked that having already consulted Bayern club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt the prognosis wasn’t good.

“The German specialist told us Mesut’s injury is quite bad.

“It’s a hamstring [problem]. It looks quite serious – he’s out for at least a few weeks. There’s a scan tomorrow.

Coming hot off the heels of the injury to Jack Wilshere it looks as though Arsenal’s options in midfield are going to be tight heading into a run of games against Sp*rs, Chelsea and Manchester City.
