Wednesday’s 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich.
Ozil saw a weak spot-kick saved by Manuel Neuer
in the early stages of the first leg of his side’s
last-16 tie against the UEFA Champions League
Things soon went from bad to worse for the hosts,
who saw goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny dismissed
for a foul on Arjen Robben, with David Alaba
missing the resulting spot-kick, before goals from
Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller left Arsene
Wenger’s side with a mountain to climb in the
second leg in Munich in three weeks time.
On Thursday, Podolski took to his official Facebook
account to give public backing to compatriot Ozil,
who bore the brunt of criticism following the game.
“Everybody is disappointed because of yesterday’s
result,” said Podolski.
“However, that’s football. It’s not fair to diss
(disrespect) Mesut. Criticism is part of sports and
this is good, but picking one player out doesn’t
help the collective and the whole club neither!
“He’s an outstanding player who will make all of
us happy in the future.
“A missed penalty won’t change that. This happens
to me and to every footballer. Friends stand
together. So let’s go!”
