Arsenal star Mesut Ozil ' has knee problems'

Arsenal Fenerbahce

Mesut Özil has a minor inflammation in his knee according to Germany’s assistant coach Thomas Schneider.

“Mesut has knee problems,” Schneider told Reuters.

“A minor inflammation. He will not be training today but will exclusively be treated for the injury.”

“But tomorrow he will be undergoing an individual training session and we will see until the game. There is no prognosis yet from me but we have the best medical department and I am confident we will get him ready.

The 26-year-old missed Arsenal’s clash with Newcastle due to a knee injury he sustained during training earlier this week. The Germany international missed three months of football last season with a knee injury .

Özil joins Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck, Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky on the sidelines for Arsenal.

The World Cup winner had started in all of Arsenal’s games this season until picking up his injury.

Germany are second in group D with 13 points in six games. The 2014 World Cup winners have won their last three group games.

The 26-year-old is also expected to feature in Germany’s encounter with Scotland on Tuesday.
