Arsenal manager respects Ozil's Germany choice, says Gunners are his 'home'

Turkey's Erdogan decries 'racist attitude' against Mesut Ozil

The fact that a player who has won 92 caps for the nation and helped the team to World Cup glory in 2014 has left with such a bitter parting shot means that what was a purely footballing inquest into Germany's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation has now become something much, much deeper.

"We are every player´s family and for him to work every day, to work well with his team-mates, is good for us".

The 29-year-old was criticised after being photographed with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May.

"We want to help all the players and Mesut to feel here with us like he´s at home, like a family", Emery, who is in his first weeks as Arsenal coach, said during a pre-season visit to Singapore.

From Ankara, Erdogan said it's "truly unacceptable that a young man who has given everything to the German national team and has contributed to its success is facing such a racist attitude because of his religion". "It is a personal decision from Mesut and I respect it".

"He feels here with us that he can work every day, and it is good for us that he made a decision to come here and work with us before our two matches".

Cohen Tapes Indicate Fraud, Not Protected By Attorney-Client Privilege
The Enquirer never ran the story , a fact that many argue strongly suggests that the tabloid killed it at Trump's behest. Reuters was unable to verify the entire exchange between the two men because of the poor sound quality of the recording.

According to the Daily Mail, witnesses of Gazidis's speech were impressed by his tone and gave him a round of applause.

"We must all work together to make use of the potential to create a positive social impact that promotes all-inclusive and respectful values of football". "The history here is one thing", he said.

"He has experience, he has quality and he has a great mentality".

The DFB on Monday rejected Ozil's claims of racism and reiterated their belief that the player should have explained his motive behind the meeting, as team-mate Ilkay Gundogan did.

Mesut Ozil looked to be in high spirits after linking up with the Arsenal squad for their pre-season trip to Singapore.

"It´s something which is unfortunate for him but we will try to do everything so that he feels good, that he trains well so he feels good for the season, because he´s one of the key players".
