Jamie Carragher gives verdict on Arsenal star Mesut Ozil snubbing Gunners’ squad wage cut | Football | Sport

“Football is a team game, it’s not an individual sport. For someone like Ozil in that situation, I think he’s got to go with what the rest of the players are doing.

“As you say, it’s a massive PR own goal.

“I’m not going to have a go at him for the wages he’s earned – if you want to have a go at Ozil for the wages he’s got, blame the people who give him the contracts.

“We all, in every walk of life, try to earn as much money as we possibly can.

“But when a situation like this comes in and you’re together as a team in a dressing room, I think the highest-paid member and the biggest name in that dressing room should be one who almost sets the example.

“It hasn’t been a great PR success story since he had that contract so another massive PR own goal.”
