Cape Town – Germany's assistant coach Thomas Schneider has slammed Arsenal's medical team over the diagnosis of Mesut Ozil's knee injury.

According to ESPN, Ozil arrived from Arsenal to Germany for their upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers in which during training he complained about a pain in his knee.

It was later disclosed that after travelling from Frankfurt to Munich to get an MRI scan, Germany’s team doctor Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt revealed that a partial lateral collateral ligament tear was discovered in Ozil's left knee.

Wohlfahrt confirmed that Ozil will be out for up to 12 weeks issuing that the midfielder will only return next year for his club Arsenal.

The Gunners then released a statement stating that, “it is too early to say how long Ozil may be out of action.”

However, Schneider backs Germany’s medical and their precision on the Ozil matter after he was questioned about Arsenal's statement.

"I have neither read nor heard about this," said Schneider.

"I think that our medical department, and we fully trust them, has diagnosed Mesut's injury.”

“And we are absolutely confident that it all was correct."
