Unai Emery has suggested Mesut Ozil could be Arsenal’s regular captain after he was handed the armband for a 5-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.
Ozil has endured a difficult summer after Germany exited the World Cup at the group stage and he then retired from international duty, accusing some German FA officials of racism.
However, Emery showed his support for the 29-year-old by naming him captain in his first pre-season appearance in the International Champions Cup clash in Singapore.
“We are working together and giving the responsibility to the players,” said Emery.
“I think he can take the responsibility, but let’s not forget [Laurent] Koscielny who is recovering with us. Then we’ve got Petr Cech, who captained us in a friendly match.
Ozil netted the opening goal in the 5-1 win, finishing from close range in the 13th minute after a pass across goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
