The German star has underwhelmed so far this season and is entering the final year of his contract in north London and has been heavily linked with a move away having yet to agree a new contract at the Gunners.
Back in January 2016, it was revealed that Real Madrid have a clause to re-sign Ozil after a transfer document was published on the Football Leaks website following his £42.5m switch to north London from the Spanish capital.
However, in his statement, Ozil has refused to rule out an exit from the Emirates at the end of the season in a move that will not go down very well with the clubs supporters.
Buried within his long post, Ozil said: “Even though I personally do not know how my career will continue after this year, I look forward to my fifth season with Arsenal.”
The midfielder added he is aware of the criticism he has received during his stay in the Premier League and is asking for others to back him and not get on his back.
He added: “Personally I’ve had to accept a lot of criticism during my time in London. ‘Too expensive, too greedy, bad body language, and lacking fight’ – this is what people have said about me.
“Some of these comments are made by those who do not know me, some are made by former players – both successful and unsuccessful during their time here at the club.
“Although criticism is something that all football players have to deal with, I nevertheless expected legends to behave like legends – my advice to these former Gunners: stop talking and start supporting.
“They [Ozil’s German teammates] claimed to have read about the current crisis through the media, as pundits and former players are commenting on a daily basis. They say that this could be the worst team in years, even decades.”
