Arsenal coach, Unai Emery has said the full Arsenal squad is behind Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac as they ready themselves to return to action.
Ozil and Sead missed last weekend’s EPL opener because of the current security issues surrounding them but are set to play on Saturday when Arsenal hosts Burnley.
Emery also said both players are mentally ready to play football again.
His words, “I think the fans, and us, are with them together,”
“We are 100 per cent with them.
“They need to feel our passion for each moment, each match.
“I want to help every player on the pitch. When they can feel our supporters with them, they perform much better.”
Am I pleased that they’re back? Of course,”
“For us, for me, first they’re a person and second they’re a player. They came back on Tuesday. Mesut was sick but today [Thursday] is getting better.
“When they are training regularly every day and consistent every day it’s good news for us because we can choose them to help us in matches – and the first match is Saturday.”
“It’s going to be a very physical match and we need that adaptation physically to be strong,”
“We need our game plan with our structure, with our tactical positioning and then after with individual duels against them.
“Burnley are very strong in the duels, they are very strong in their structure, with two strikers. They are going to demand a lot of us defensively, with their long balls especially.
“They have players who play very well. If you let them play. I respect their team a lot and I respect their coach a lot.”
