Arsenal legend Ian Wright makes Mesut Ozil plea to Arsene Wenger

Ian Wright has called on the Arsenal boss to get the team playing around Mesut Ozil.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has made an impassioned plea to Arsene Wenger to get the team playing around record signing Mesut Ozil.

The German playmaker started out wide against Borussia Dortmund again, and was ineffective in a 2-0 defeat which really should have been far heavier.

Ozil was booked and hauled off as soon as the 62nd minute, although Arsenal's prospects did not improve without him.

Wright urged on his Twitter feed after the game, for Arsene Wenger to get the side playing around the former Real Madrid man.

The problem for Wenger is that Ozil is offering absolutely nothing right now to suggest he deserves to have the side built around him. It's a malaise which stems back to the beginning of the calendar year, not just the one month the season has been up and running.
