Mesut Ozil has confirmed that the hamstring strain he suffered against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night happened in just the 2nd minute of the game.
Although Arsenal had a difficult 45 minutes against the Germans, Ozil was rounded on by sections of the media for his below-par performance, but playing with a strained hammy can’t have been easy.
He said on Facebook page, Ddear friends, now it’s clear: during the #ucl match against #FCBayern I suffered a muscle injury in the second minute. I tried to give my best and played until the end of the first half. Rest assured that I’ll be back even stronger!”
Earlier today Arsene Wenger confirmed that the club were still awaiting the full results of scans which would determine how long he’s going to be sidelined for.
Hopefully it’s not anything as close to the 6 weeks some are suggesting.
