While reacting to Ozil’s performance, Arsenal legend, Henry said that Kanu and other former Arsenal players of that era would have addressed the German midfielder in the dressing room.

He can clearly play and last year everyone was praising him,” Henry told Sky Sports News.

This year, he is struggling because he doesn’t do enough on a daily basis.

When he plays in an Arsenal shirt, sometimes it is not up to the standard of Arsenal. I’m a big admirer of him and how he plays but if he was in my old team, I know a couple of guys would have had a go at him and maybe that is what he needs.

“In my old team, everyone talked. Sylvain Wiltord talked. Edu the same. Even Nwankwo Kanu would have said something.

Jens Lehmann, he was talking all the time. We had guys at it throughout the team.”

Arsenal are currently sixth in the league table with 51 points and seven points off the Champions League spot.
