DAVID LUIZ has revealed that Mesut Ozil consoled him when Germany knocked Brazil out of the 2014 World Cup, instead of celebrating.
Speaking to Arsenal Player, he said: “I think these quiet moments happen in life, and they are natural moments.
“He felt my pain and he came to me with respect and shook my hand, and tried to console me after losing a game.
“This is a natural action, and a great action from him as a person and as a human being. I have a lot of respect for him and remember him in a positive way.
“He showed he is humble and he can see different things in different moments because normally when you win a big game, you just think about celebrating and being with your team.
“But he had the vision in a deep way, where he was trying to put himself in my place and that is why he had this great action.”
MESUT OZIL has hit back at Unai Emery and Raul Sanllehi's claims that he is not pushing himself hard enough in training.
And the £350,000-a-week superstar insists he has been made a scapegoat in the past for some of Arsenal's failings.
“If that's true, how do you explain our results in the 'big' games when I wasn't involved? There's no real difference.
“I know people expect me to offer more, dictate play and make the difference – I do, too – but it's not that straightforward.
“I'm not the only player in the team and, don't forget, some of our opponents are simply better than us.”
ARSENAL predicted line-up to face Sheffield United next Monday.
KIERAN TIERNEY could finally make his first Premier League appearance for Arsenal when they face Sheffield United next week.
Tierney has been forced to wait for his big introduction to life with the Gunners after arriving with a long-term groin injury.
The Scottish international has figured in Carabao Cup and Europa League action but decided against linking up with his country last week in order to continue building his fitness.
Now he is pushing for a place in Unai Emery's side for the clash with the Blades on Monday night.
Emery is also boosted by the return to fitness of striker Alexandre Lacazette.
The French forward scored two goals in the first three games of the season but hasn't been seen since then through an ankle problem.
But the Arsenal boss is considering bringing him in for the match at Bramall Lane.
