Mesut Ozil will feel at home at Arsenal following fallout with the German Football Association and officials.

The 29-year-old called it quits with the national team on Sunday after series of attacks from officials and the public due to a photograph of him and the president of turkey.

Ozil alleged the matter was treated in a racist and discriminatory manner.

The player was on Tuesday shown public support by Arsenal Chief Executive, Iva Gazidis, who made a passionate appeal on behalf of the 2014 World Cup winner with Germany.

Gunners boss, Unai Emery, also has come out in full support of the player, together with the rest of the team.

“We are going to help him feel good and show his quality with us,” Emery said.

“Mesut has the respect of every player here.

“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.”

Emery is convinced the incident will not affect his mentality and readiness for the coming season.

“I am sure he is going to have a big season with us.

“He has experience, he has quality and he has a great mentality.”

Ozil joined the team in Singapore where they are camped for pre-season preparation, with a game against Atletico Madrid on Thursday.
