MICAH RICHARDS: Mikel Arteta is proving to be a brilliant boss

  MICAH RICHARDS: Mikel Arteta is proving to be a brilliant boss MICAH RICHARDS: I have a picture in my mind about Arsenal. It comes from February 2003 and a game they played against Manchester City at Maine Road. Though I grew up in Leeds, Arsenal were my team as a kid so I was never going to miss any chance to see them live. This particular Saturday, 17 years ago, I had been playing for City’s academy in the morning and then headed over to the old stadium.The reason the memory is so vivid is because of the football I saw that day. It was one of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen, a display that had me in awe.

Mesut Ozil has reportedly been left out of Arsenal ' s 25 - man Premier League squad submitted on Tuesday, leaving the big-money outcast facing the prospect of never featuring for the Gunners again.

If his exclusion is confirmed, it would cap a miserable few months for the midfielder, who joined the club for a then-club record of £42.5million in 2013.

He has already been axed from Arteta's Europa League squad and came under fire when he refused to take a pay cut during lockdown.

His exit from the club appears to be inevitable, with club legends weighing into the saga and casting doubt on his future. Former striker Kevin Campbell called him 'yesterday's news' and claimed there was 'no chance' he would feature for the club ever again.

'There have been certain things that have gone on, instances where he has gone against the club, so I don't see where there is any room for him to come back,' he told Genting Bet last week.

Meanwhile, legendary centre-back Martin Keown said Ozil's stand-off with the club 'cannot go on forever' and admitted it seemed unlikely that there was a way back under Arteta.
