Deal with it, Mesut! Arsene Wenger tells Ozil to respond to Arsenal penalty shocker
ARSENE WENGER has told devastated Mesut Ozil to get over his penalty miss.
The Gunners fell to a 2-0 defeat and Wenger admits the latest setback is playing on the Germany star's mind
Wenger said: "Is he over it now? Certainly not, because 48 hours is a short time to get over that but it is part of the job as well to deal with disappointment and to show that you can respond to it.
"He apologised after the game but I don't think people are shocked by the fact that he missed a penalty because Bayern missed a penalty as well.
"He takes his penalties in an unusual way so people are maybe a little bit less understanding, but everybody can miss penalties.
"It is his way, you accept it or not. It's his way of taking penalties like that."
"I had examples before, with people like Dennis Bergkamp who missed an important penalty in 1999 and refused after to take any penalty (for a while).
"Incidentally he (Bergkamp) gets a statue (at the Emirates Stadium) on Saturday, so that doesn't take a statue away from you and some other people don't mind and (take penalties) again.
"It depends on how you feel and how much you want it."
