Mesut Özil fires back at Thierry Henry’s “holding Arsenal hostage” comments

Speaking in an interview with German outlet Kicker, Arsenal attacking midfielder Mesut Özil moved to respond to criticism from pundits such as Gunners legend and former French international Thierry Henry who has claimed in recent days that the German is “holding the club hostage” with regards to his contract situation.

“Everyone has a right to say what they want but what they have to say doesn’t interest me. Ex-players or other people who have a view don’t know what is actually being said between me and the club.”
