Ozil, who has Turkish roots, has a new club manager after former Paris Saint-Germain head coach Emery took over the reins from Arsene Wenger at the end of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has finally made a comment about the decision made by his player and says that they are ready to support the German worldwide in this time where he has been hurt by his country which he says that he has given all up until now.

He was also criticised for meeting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May, where the pair were photographed holding up an Arsenal shirt.

"He has experience, he has quality and he has a great mentality and we are going to help him feel good and to show his quality with us", said Emery.

Emery says he has not yet spoken to Ozil about his decision, which was explained across several lengthy statements on Twitter.

It also condemned "the treatment, threats and derogatory messages" against Ozil and asked the football community to stand united against "racism and intolerance".
