Mesut Ozil recently announced his decision to retire from global football after he received strong criticism from the Germany football federation after he was pictured with the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Mesut Ozil was selected among the squad which travelled to Singapore for the International Champions Cup which Arsenal will be participating in and the Arsenal manager made the comments from the Asian country. "I´m looking at every player and I think Mesut, he has here the respect of every player".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is keen to offer Mesut Ozil a semblance of "normality" following the midfielder's controversial decision to retire from worldwide duty with Germany this week. "We are going to help him to feel good", Emery added.

"It´s something which is unfortunate for him but we will try to do everything so that he feels good, that he trains well so he feels good for the season, because he´s one of the key players".

Ozil said he received threats and hate mail after the photographs with Erdogan were published. He has taken full part in double training sessions on tour but the match against Atletico Madrid on Thursday will come too soon.

"I prefer to give him normality in the team, he feels good with us".
