Wilshere defends ex-Arsenal pal Ozil: One of the best players I've played with

Jack Wilshere has jumped to the defence of former Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil.

Ozil has been axed from both the Europa League and Premier League squads at Arsenal.

Free agent Wilshere said, "He's one of the best players I've played with.

"All I can do is comment on him as a footballer and I know what he can give, so it does make it difficult to understand.

"But I'm not in the club, I don't know what's happened. I'm sure a lot of teams in England and Europe - Mesut will be the first name on the team sheet."
