Arsenal boss Wenger relieves Ozil of spotkick duties
Asked whether he would let Ozil take a penalty again, Wenger said: "I believe that at the moment you have to let him recover from that.
"I had examples before, with people like Dennis Bergkamp who missed an important penalty in 1999 and refused after to take any penalty (for a while).
"Incidentally he (Bergkamp) gets a statue (at the Emirates Stadium) on Saturday, so that doesn't take a statue away from you and some other people don't mind and (take penalties) again.
"It depends on how you feel and how much you want it."
