  • Unai Emery makes Mesut Ozil prediction ahead of his first season at Arsenal

The Gunners playmaker announced his retirement from global football on Sunday, citing discrimination from the DFB as part of the reasoning for his decision.

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.

"Mesut has the respect of every player here", said Emery, who was appointed as Arsene Wenger's successor in May.

"As a team we support him here, we try to make sure he feels good, so he can train and perform at his best", said Cech.

Arsenal forward Reiss Nelson and midfielder Alex Iwobi sat alongside Ozil at the fan event in Singapore with the former admitting new coach Unai Emery had been very active in his first few training sessions with the club. We are going to help him to feel good.

Ozil, who was born in Germany to Turkish-origin parents, said he felt "racism and disrespect" - pointing the finger at German football authorities - in his no-holds-barred statement released over the weekend.

Ozil chose to cut short his holiday to join up with his Arsenal team-mates in Singapore for pre-season and the former Real Madrid star is ready to put a turbulent summer behind him.

Sportsmail revealed on Tuesday how chief executive Ivan Gazidis roused Arsenal staff and players on Monday by launching an impassioned defence of Ozil during a morale-boosting barbecue.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Thursday's friendly against Atletico Madrid, with Paris St Germain also providing opposition later on the trip, Emery told arsenal.com: "All of us want to help Mesut feel like it is his home here with us, like a family and it is a family for every player".

Asked whether Ozil was mentally prepared for the season, Spaniard Emery said: "I am sure he is going to have a big season with us".

Arsenal will also play Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday in the tournament. As a team that's all we can do.
