Joorabchian, who represents Willian and Philippe Coutinho among others, thinks there are no ‘winners’ in the standoff and that Ozil’s representatives should have found a solution this summer.
Ozil has publicly criticised the decision to leave him off the rosters – which will likely mean he doesn’t play any competitive football until January – saying he is ‘saddened’ that his ‘loyalty’ has not been reciprocated by the club.
But Joorabchian thinks the entire situation is foolish and that it should have been resolved some time ago.
‘I don’t see any winners in this situation,’ he told Talksport.
‘I don’t see who wins in a situation where you don’t find an agreement between each other.
‘It’s just pure stupidity. I think it’s the essential role of the agent not just to bring high transfers to clubs, but also where there’s a problem to fix it. I think that’s what the role and job title says.
‘The role of the agent in the case of Mesut is to ensure he plays.
‘He’s a big player, but he just doesn’t fit the Arsenal mould today. He has a lot of talent, he’s a World Cup winner, this is a player who should be playing somewhere right now.’
