Unlike a large part of the squad, Özil had refused to agree to a salary reduction by 15 percent.
“As far as the salary talent, he had asked me where the money goes,” Sögüt said in an interview with arsenal fan TV. He continued to led: “Mesut wanted collateral from the club that no one is released. Management should also participate in a salary reduction.”
If it had given this insurance, says Sögüt, Özil had even renounced even more money, “30 percent” as he explains. “He just wanted to know where the money is going. He did not want a new player to be paid, if it had gone to secure jobs, he would have done it,” says Sögauut.
