Mesut Ozil Speak Out After Arsenal Suffered A Shocking Defeat To BATE

Arsenal playmaker, Mesut Ozil, has urged his team-mates to “bounce back” from their shock Europa League defeat to BATE Borisov.

The Gunners slipped to a 1-0 loss in Belarus and will be without Alexandre Lacazette for the second leg, after the French striker was sent off late on.

Ozil missed the victory over Huddersfield Town at the weekend due to an illness, but he did not travel with the squad to Belarus despite training this week.

After the defeat, Ozil posted a message of support on Twitter, ahead of the return leg at the Emirates Stadium next week.

“Not the result we wanted, but we still can do it in the 2nd leg and reach the next round!

“Let’s bounce back at the Emirates especially for our fans,” he wrote.
