MUNICH, Germany – Arsenal's Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil faces a few weeks on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury in their Champions League exit at Bayern Munich.
Ozil failed to come out for the second-half as Arsenal drew 1-1
at holders Bayern on Tuesday in the last 16, second-leg, as the Gunners bowed out 3-1 on aggregate.
Gunners manager Arsene Wenger said Ozil will definitely miss their Premier League game at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
“Ozil has a hamstring injury and it looks quite serious,” said Wenger.
“He will miss the Tottenham game for sure, he needs a scan. He's out for at least a few weeks.”
The Munich injury caps a miserable two legs for Ozil, who failed to convert a crucial penalty in the 2-0 first-leg defeat in London and apologised to Gunners fans via Facebook.
He is one of Germany's key players, with Joachim Loew's side set to launch their World Cup campaign against Portugal on June 16. – Sapa-AFP
