Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Mesut Ozil kicked a door in frustration following the 2-0 defeat by Tottenham – a loss that means Spurs will finish above their north London rivals for the first time since 1995.
Reports suggested the Germany playmaker had reacted angrily after being told he had to undertake a random post-match drug test.
“I am sorry that he kicked the door but I don’t think his frustration was towards the drugs test, it was towards the game,” Wenger said.
“I did not speak about it then because I only heard about it today. I don’t know what really happened but it is always good to get the player’s version.”
There are also questions over Ozil’s future at the club, with the 28-year-old midfielder’s contract set to expire at the end of next season.
