Mesut Ozil’s omission from the PFA Team of the Season has come as a surprise to Arsene Wenger.
The German playmaker has created more chances than any other player in the Premier League this season, and has the most assists, yet was left out of the fictional XI chosen by his fellow professionals.
Although Hector Bellerin made the line-up at right back, Ozil missed out. Probably because he doesn’t RUN AROOOOOUUUUUNNNDDD enough.
Speaking about the selection, the Arsenal manager said, “It’s a surprise for me. I cannot explain it, because it’s the players who vote. I don’t know why they did not pick him.
“When you are top of the assists, usually that’s a sign of quality that should get you a place in a top team.”
In reality though, it doesn’t mean anything. We know Ozil has been fantastic, and the least of our problems this season.
If the others can’t see that, there’s not much point getting stressed about it.
