Ozil defends United recruit Schweinsteiger

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil believes Germany team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger is being unfairly judged following his move to Manchester United.

Debate has raged as to whether Schweinsteiger’s 31-year-old body can hold up to the demands of the Premier League after leaving boyhood club Bayern Munich for United in July.

Schweinsteiger – yet to complete a full match as a United player – produced a classy second-half cameo as Louis van Gaal’s men qualified for the UEFA Champions League group stage via a 4-0 second-leg win at Club Brugge.

Ozil is in no doubt that the Germany captain will silence his critics over the course of the season.

“The drastic interim judgment in [the] English press is not fair towards him,” Ozil told Germany’s Sport 1.

“He certainly needs some time to adjust to Premier League. Just allow him a bit of time.

“Basti has shown the whole world at the World Cup what a leader he is, most of all in the final.

“Whenever the English media writes about Bastian, they put a World Cup winner before his name.

“He’s now the German world champion, who should make the difference for United.”

It’s hilarious to me how English media outlets dog foreign players meanwhile half of the squads consist mainly of foreign players… Basti made the move like what two weeks ago and they’re already on his case. That’s horrendous… Basti is proven World class player who has won the Champions League and not to mention the World Cup in which he was captain for his country… He’s playing for a new squad in a new league… Seriously they need to stop riding his ass… This is the exact reason why I hope the likes of Alaba, Müller and Götze never leave… Read more »
