Wenger offers apology after ‘angry’ Ozil kicks door at WHL

Mesut Ozil: Struggles for Arsenal

Mesut Ozil’s kicking of a door at White Hart Lane on Sunday has forced Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger into an apology on Thursday.

The Gunners were made to look very much second best as Tottenham eased to a 2-0 success to leave Arsenal’s Champions League hopes in significant doubt.

It also guaranteed that Tottenham will finish the season above their north London rivals for the first time since the 1994/95 season.

It was the final north London derby to be staged at White Hart Lane, with Tottenham set to play their home games at Wembley from next season.

Stories emerged earlier this week claiming that Ozil kicked a door at the stadium out of frustration following the defeat.

The German was informed that he had been selected for a random drugs test after the game, and Ozil is thought to have initially refused to go through the procedure, before kicking a door and reluctantly agreeing.

Asked on the situation on Thursday, Wenger replied: “I am sorry that he kicked the door. I don’t think his frustration was towards the drug test, it was towards the game.

“I didn’t speak to him about it because I only heard about it today.”

Questioned about Ozil’s contract, he added: “No news yet.”
