Gunners to run own Ozil scans

Cape Town - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be seeking a second opinion on Mesut Ozil's knee injury after the German Football Federation claimed he would be sidelined for "10 to 12 weeks".

The 25-year-old underwent scans in Germany this week, with the DFB then announcing the play maker had suffered a "partial rupture of the outer band of the left knee joint".

The Gunners revealed in a statement that it is too early to say how long the midfielder would be out for only for Germany's assistant coach Thomas Schneider to blast Arsenal's statement over the diagnosis of Ozil injury.

Schneider confirmed his backing to Germany’s medical team and their precision on the Ozil matter after he was questioned about Arsenal's statement.

However Wenger admits that the signs are not good for Ozil, he insists they will only announce a time frame for his return after running their own medical checks when he returns to the Emirates Stadium.

"When he arrived with the German national team, they didn't think it was a lot at the start. He was supposed to practice on Wednesday but, in the end, he said that wasn't possible for him," Wenger said.

"Then he had a scan and it was bad news. We have our own specialist giving us his opinion after reading the scan and examining Mesut. We will follow our own recommendations."
