Arsenal boss Emery denies Ozil blow-up after West Ham win

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has denied claims he dropped Mesut Ozil for the win over West Ham.

There's been claims the German went AWOL from training upon learning of Emery's selection.

But the manager insisted: "Maybe in English it is difficult to explain, but first, why is this information [being reported]? It isn't true. That information needs first to be true. Who is starting to telling you or us this information? You ask me, or the doctor, or the club. He was sick yesterday. He spoke with the doctor and with me, and decided not to play today. But he did not leave training [due to that], but because he was going to his home, because he was sick.

"He was sick and today, he was sick. He left to his house and I said to him, to come [to the match] if he feels better and he feels better today and before the match he is with the team and with me.

"When you are sick… I don't know how I can explain in English. In Spanish it is 'catarro'. (Translator: He is blocked up, he's got a cold.)

"He is bad with sick. It is not a problem with the player, it is not true this information. So ask the doctor and the doctor can explain better!"
