Arsenal ace Mesut Ozil breaks silence after missing Tottenham win through 'back injury'

The German midfielder has been absent for two Gunners matches in a row as Unai Emery benched his ace against Bournemouth in the previous fixture.

Ozil's unavailability for the North London derby sparked controversy as Emery seemed to evade questions about his star after the match.

The Spanish coach said Ozil had been suffering to back ache, but failed to provide more details on the injury.

Emery admitted he did not even know whether the German had attended the clash.

The 30-year-old midfielder broke his silence on social after the game posting a picture of the result and the Gunners' players celebrating with the corner flag.

However, did not refer to his back problems at all.

He tweeted: "When Sead Kolasinac pulls out the Emirates corner flag then you know something big has happened. Proud of the whole team.

He added: "North London is red!".

Ozil is going through a difficult time at the Emirates, having been benched by Emery for the away game against Bournemouth.

The Spaniard manager pointed the physicality of the game as the reason behind his decision.

Ozil was also substituted with 15 minutes to go in the 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton while the Gunners where still chasing an equaliser.

SunSport has revealed that the German might consider his future in the summer, with Inter Milan offering him an escape route.
