Kia takes fresh aim at Arsenal and Ozil: Pure stupidity!

Super agent Kia Joorabchian has taken fresh aim at Mesut Ozil's situation at Arsenal.

Joorabchian is well known for being a passionate Gunners supporter.

"I don't see any winners in this situation," he told talkSPORT. "Ozil is not teaching Arsenal a lesson by sitting out and not playing, and Arsenal are not teaching Ozil a lesson by omitting him from the Premier League squad.

"I don't see who wins in a situation where you don't find an agreement between each other. It's just pure stupidity.

"I think it's the essential role of the agent not just to bring high transfers to clubs, but also where there's a problem to fix it. I think that's what the role and job title says.

"There was a situation at Everton where Theo Walcott wasn't going to get enough game time and so he moved to Southampton, because they were very proactive.

"The role of the agent in the case of Mesut is to ensure he plays.

"He's a big player, but he just doesn't fit the Arsenal mould today. He has a lot of talent, he's a World Cup winner, this is a player who should be playing somewhere right now."
