Ozil’s message for Arsenal youngsters: Mesut Ozil had a positive message for Arsenal’s young players after the club secured a 3-0 win over Vorskla.
Arsenal extended their unbeaten run to 18 games across all competitions as they cruised past Vorskla 3-0 in the Europa League game. The club has already qualified for the round-of-32 of the tournament.
Unai Emery opted to play a fairly young side for the game against Ukrainian side, and the players didn’t disappoint.
Emile Smith Rowe scored the first goal of the game, while Joe Willock scored in his first game for Arsenal’s senior team this season. Aaron Ramsey scored a penalty to wrap the game in the first half itself, as Arsenal go to round-of-32 of the tournament.
The fans on social media were impressed by Arsenal’s display on the night, and one of Arsenal’s key midfielder, Mesut Ozil also praised the youngsters’ efforts.
Ozil’s message for Arsenal youngsters:
Mesut Ozil took to Twitter to appreciate the players for their game. The midfielder was rested for the match. Ozil didn’t play a part in Arsenal’s win over Bournemouth last week, as he was an unused sub.
The player wrote, “This performance from the youngsters tonight… The future is bright! Congrats to all players! #YaGunnersYA #COYG #UEL @Arsenal.”
Here’s the tweet:
