Mesut Ozil sent a message of congratulations to his Arsenal team-mates after being left out of their FA Cup final win over Chelsea.

Ozil was not part of Mikel Arteta’s cup-winning side, in fact he wasn’t even in the country. He was in Turkey, with Arsenal’s permission.

Despite being their best-paid player, the German World Cup winner has not played a single minute of football since football resumed and his absence from the FA Cup final squad suggests he is not a part of Arteta’s plans.

The 31-year-old may not have got his hand on the trophy, but he did seem pleased to see his team-mates get the job done after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice in a 2-1 win over Frank Lampard’s team.

Ozil posted a picture of the Arsenal squad holding the FA Cup trophy aloft with the caption: ‘Great job my boys!!! ????? #LondonIsRed  ? #YaGunnersYa  #FACupWinners’

He was not the only high-profile player left out of the side. Matteo Guendouzi, who hasn’t played since clashing with Brighton players in the second match of Project Restart, was also dumped from the final squad.

He wasn’t in the stadium either but Arteta was not keen to discuss either’s future after the match.

Asked if there was anything in them both being absent, Arteta replied: ‘Let’s enjoy the moment.’

He added: ‘We don’t have here Matteo and Mesut but they deserve credit as they played their part.’
