Unai Emery has said Mesut Ozil needs to be “more consistent” to wrestle his place back in the team.
Ozil has started just one more time since the Dec. 26 draw at Brighton.
His words, “The key is in his hands and he is working very well this week,”
“I ask him in our conversations to be consistent — to be available for us [in] training.
“When you can train with a regularity, with consistency it can help [produce the] best performance to help us in the games and now, this week, it’s good for all the players because I think we are in an important moment for the season.
“I am doing the training like we want. I know he wants [it], but he needs consistency, [to be] available in training and the matches without the injury and without being sick.
“Like that, we can see the best Mesut with us.”
