Arsenal boss Wenger: Wilshere and Ozil can play in same team

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil can play in the same team.

Wilshere is currently on-loan at Bournemouth.

Wenger said: "I believe that England wanted to play him deeper and I can understand that as well because he can get you out of pressure with a good pass.

"That's just my opinion about his position. But I think his main problem overall is being capable of playing every week. After that, I can understand that you want to use him deeper but I liked him when he was taking the ball and he is in there.

"You do not find many people who take people on. Comparing him to Ozil, he is a guy who takes people on with the ball while Ozil passes around people. He can complement him very well."
