Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta has been ordered to apologize to Mesut Ozil and get him back in the squad to achieve results.
The Londoners have been struggling in the season and have failed to win four of their last Premier League fixtures, three of which were defeats.
In their last encounter, they were beaten 2-0 by rivals Tottenham even though they created many chances and took possession throughout the match.

What was clear from the start is their lack of a creativity in creating chances, breaking the midfield and setting up balls for Aubamayeng upfront.
Speaking on the cub performance was Arsenal legend Paul Merson who gave Arteta a piece of advise if they were to bounce back to winning ways.
Merson continued by calling on Arteta to approach Ozil and offer his apology and bring him back in the team come January 2021.
The playmaker was axed out of the Gunners Premier League and Europa League fixtures in what remains unclear to date.
In response to the news, the German noted how loyalty is hard to come by these days but promised to continue with training.
Arsenal who are set to play Burnley over the weekend will have to secure the maximum three points and improve in the coming fixtures.
They are also expected to make major signing in the January transfer window and usher in new creative midfield players to boost their chances of a top finish.
