Mesut Ozil sends message to Abou Diaby after Arsenal exit

Mesut Ozil takes to social media to send his best wishes to Abou Diaby after the midfielder signs for Marseille

Mesut Ozil took to social media to send his best wishes to Abou Diaby after the former Arsenal midfielder joined Marseille on a free transfer this week.

The French midfielder was a free agent after being deemed surplus to requirements at The Emirates following his injury-hit spell at the north London club.

Ozil sent Diaby the following message via his personal Twitter account:

The 29-year-old Diaby played 180 matches for Arsenal, scoring 19 goals and notching up 16 assists, but his recent injury struggles meant that he only made 17 senior appearances for the Gunners over the last three seasons.
