Arsenal boss Emery snappy over DC United Ozil queries

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has sought to shut down rumours of Mesut Ozil's departure for Washington.

Ozil has been linked with a January move to DC United as a high-profile replacement for Wayne Rooney.

But asked about the speculation, Emery said: "When we are playing our second match and our first match at home against Burnley, can you think I am thinking and losing my time if the player can leave from here?

"My focus and direction with the players is here with us and everybody. Each player on Saturday will be ready for Saturday."
