ARSENE Wenger has revealed why Mesut Ozil went nightclubbing – hours after missing Arsenal’s game against Newcastle

Ozil missed the match at St James’s Park earlier this month, won 2-1 by Arsenal, through illness.

But the £42m.5m signing was spotted at a Berlin nightclub that night.

Arsenal manager has revealed why Ozil was out, despite having been declared too unwell to play.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s home game against Liverpool, Wenger said: “He went out for half an hour to a birthday for his friend to wish him well.”
