The German Football Federation confirmed on Wednesday that Mesut Ozil could be ruled out until next year after a scan revealed knee ligament damage.
Ozil arrived in Germany on Monday but was rested following Sundays Premier League match against Chelsea but concerns were raised when the player complained of a problem in his knee. The Arsenal midfielder was immediately withdrawn from training and remained at the teams’ hotel for further assessment. Following a more thorough examination by renowned national team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt in Munich the diagnosis was a partial tear of the lateral [outer] band which would typically require six weeks of immobilisation plus around 4-6 weeks of rehabilitation meaning a return this year is unlikely. Ozil joins Aaron Ramsey in the treatment room but the Gunners can at least count on the impending return of Mikel Arteta while Theo Walcott is not far away. Oct 8 - 1:30 PM
