Ozil dismisses criticism from Henry

Ozil at Emirates

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has dismissed criticism from club legend Thierry Henry.

The London club face a battle to hold on to midfielder Ozil and forward Alexis Sanchez.

Both are demanding £300,000-a-week deals, with clubs in Europe and China set to pounce.

Arsenal ex-player Henry has accused them of “holding the club to ransom”.

Yet Ozil said: “Everyone has a right to say what they want — but what they have to say doesn’t interest me.”
