Mesut Ozil disappointed with Arsenal reaction after his Uighur Muslims comments
Mesut Ozil has expressed his disappointment at Arsenal’s reaction when he called out the alleged mistreatment of Uighur Muslims in China.
In December, the former Germany international posted on social media about the Uighur population and called them “warriors who resist persecution”.
Arsenal did not criticise Ozil for making the comments, instead posting on their page on the Chinese social media site Weibo that the club “always adheres to the principles” of not getting involved in politics.
Since then Premier League clubs have supported the Black Lives Matter movement after the death of George Floyd and the Gunners playmaker, while pleased, would have liked similar support.
