Mesut Ozil appears to have denied claims he will leave Arsenal this summer and has given a resounding endorsement of Arsene Wenger's management ability.

Don Balon, a Spanish news outlet, reported that Ozil wanted away from the Emirates Stadium if Wenger was not replaced as manager in the close season.

But in a post on his official Twitter page, the German midfielder wrote that Wenger was a major factor in him joining Arsenal in the first place, and called for greater respect for the Frenchman.
