Wenger: 'Ozil's injury is quite bad'

The Gunners' record signing was withdrawn with a hamstring problem at halftime as the North Londoners fell 3-1 on aggregate to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says the hamstring injury that forced Mesut Ozil off at halftime in the club's 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich is "quite bad."

The 42 million pound summer signing was replaced at the break by Tomas Rosicky with a suspected hamstring problem and was examined by Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, the Bayern and Germany national team doctor, prompting Wenger to tell Sky Germany: "Ozil's injury is quite bad."

The midfielder was not permitted to speak to English or German media after the game.

In Ozil's absence, the Gunners fell behind on the night to a Bastian Schweinsteiger goal and, though Lukas Podolski soon equalized, they were eliminated from the Champions League 3-1 on aggregate.
