Mesut Ozil willing to take bigger pay cut than Arsenal team-mates but on one condition | Football | Sport

Ozil has been roundly criticised for his actions, meanwhile, with former. Manchester United defender Gary Neville claiming that he should’ve taken the same side as the bulk of his team-mates.

The Sky Sports pundit said: “They’ve outed him. The club or the players have outed him, it’s as simple as that. They’re throwing him overboard.

“[But] I think the principle of not being together as a group is indefensible.

“I think that’s the biggest problem, when you’ve got the group of players who are all adopting one position, you go with it, you’re a team on and off the pitch.

“I wouldn’t like to be one of the people that haven’t agreed with the rest of the group. I think it will isolate them and alienate them in everything moving forward.

“They’re entitled to make their own decisions, you cannot rip up a player’s contract or force them to take a cut or a deferral. When a group of players are voting on something, you go along with it.
