UEL: Arsenal Manager Emery Drops Ozil, Ramsey


Ozil has 13 months to run on his deal

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has excluded midfielders, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey, from the squad to face BATE Borisov, in their Europa League last 32 tie on Thursday.

Ozil has returned to full training after recovering from illness but has not travelled to Belarus for the match.

Ramsey, who on Monday signed a £400k a week deal to join Juventus in the summer, misses out with a knee injury.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Granit Xhaka are back after missing Saturday’s Premier League win over Huddersfield.

Centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos is still absent, because of an ankle injury despite returning to training.

BATE host Arsenal on Thursday, with the return leg at Emirates Stadium on Thursday, 21 February.
