Arsenal legend Liam Brady believes that Mesut Ozil deserves time to settle into Premier League life.
The German international playmaker has come in for criticism in recent months for some below par performances.
Brady told talkSPORT: “He’s not deserved the criticism in his first Premier League season. Everybody needs time. He started off really, really well.
“People forget Arsenal lost Ramsey and Walcott at a crucial time. Those players were very good for Ozil. Think of how many goals he set up for both of them. With those two players missing it’s made a hell of a difference to his game.
“Arsenal have had a lot of bad luck with injuries in the last few weeks.”
