Mesut Ozil is only responsible for his exile from the Arsenal team, according to former defender Lauren.
Ozil has not played since March and has been banned from both the Premier League and the Europa League. This means that he is only eligible for the Carabao Cup before January.
The midfielder, who is the club’s highest paid player with a weekly wage of £ 350,000, knocked out the club for a lack of loyalty while manager Mikel Arteta took the blame for not getting the best out of him.

Lauren believes Ozil’s situation has not changed from Unai Emery’s reign to Mikel Artetas
But Lauren, who played for the Gunners from 2000 to 2007, said Ozil was responsible for his departure from the team and said the World Cup winner had long had problems.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: ‘All of us who follow Arsenal want to see the best players but this situation has not yet arisen. I think it’s the same with Emery and Arteta.
‘Arteta would like to have the best players in the squad. If Ozil is not there, it is a consequence of many problems.
Arteta left the midfielder out of both his Premier League and Europa League squads
‘First of all, it’s the player’s fault. I think if you have the quality, if you are a top player, if you are not involved week in and out of the week I believe that it is your own fault.
“If you do everything you should as a top player, it is difficult for a manager and a club to say that you are not going to play, you will not be involved in the team.”
As revealed by SportsmailOzil believes that Arsenal’s commercial interests in China contributed to their decision to leave him out after criticizing China’s alleged mistreatment of Uighur Muslims, which sparked a backlash in the Far East.

Ozil also came under fire for refusing to take a 12.5 percent pay cut in April despite being the club’s top earner at £ 350,000 a week. The midfielder allegedly refused because of a lack of clarity about how the money will be spent.
Arteta insisted that his call was merely a “football decision” and had nothing to do with Ozil’s behavior, refusal to cut his salary during the lockdown, or instructions from the board of directors or the owner.
Ozil’s agent Dr. Erkut Sogut accused the Arsenal manager of lying, claiming he failed to be fair or to show respect to the midfielder.
