Unai Emery reveals chat with Wilshere that made him leave Arsenal

Arsenal will have a new manager for the first time after 22 long seasons as legendary French manager Arsene Wenger left the club this summer.

That could give Arsenal an edge in their season opener against Manchester City, who had seven players take part in the World Cup semifinals and may not be back in time for the August 12 game.

Then Ozil was dropped for Germany's last match against Sweden as his country were knocked out in the World Cup group stage.

And asked how he will help the midfielder get over his recent hardships, Emery said: "We are here to help every player".

"For us Mesut is a very important player", said the Spaniard.

Sokratis: Experience. He has experience in his career and we want him to give us his experience on the pitch.

Djokovic leads Nadal as semi-final halted by curfew
The 12-times Grand Slam victor Djokovic leads Nadal 6-4 3-6 7 (11)-6, with their match expected to resume at 1pm on Saturday. Wimbledon bosses closed the roof before the start but a 23:00 curfew meant the match will resume at 13:00 on Saturday.

"The national team didn't get the results they want but today he is on holiday, and I want him to relax well and I want, when he comes back with us, to start with a good mentality". Mesut is on holiday and I want him to be tranquil and calm.

In January, Ozil signed a new deal worth £350,000-a-week but his low-key performances afterwards led to claims the Gunners had wasted their money.

Ozil has been criticised in Germany following the team's exit in the group stage in Russian Federation, both for his performances on the pitch and for posing for a photo with Turkey president Recep Erdogan before the tournament.

Wilshere moved to West Ham on a free transfer when his contract expired last week, parting company with his boyhood club after 17 years. "They finished sixth in the Premier League - not the position we want".

"I know this player here is important for the supporters and grew up here in Arsenal but I don't give him one place in the starting XI and it is for that [reason] he chose to leave here and I respect also this".

"With quality, it is very easy to arrive at the performance - individual and collective".
