Mesut Ozil has been backed to bounce back from his Arsenal struggles under Unai Emery.
Ozil has been rarely used by the Gunners boss this season, making just two appearances, once in the Premier League and the other in the Carabao Cup - not making the squad for either of the Europa League matches.
The 30-year-old playmaker has clocked up just 142 minutes of football this season and has not been included in the squad on five occasions in the league (missing in four of the last five games).
However, former Turkish international Hamit Altintop has backed the German to rediscover his best form.
Speaking during an interview with Goal, the former Schalke, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid midfielder said: “Mesut is a good guy who has had an unbelievable career.
“He is always respectful and serious and that's the base for a good sportsman. He's a young man and he's allowed to make mistakes. That's important.
“His current situation at Arsenal is not good but this is part of life and his career. He worked hard for 10 years for his passion so I think he will come back.”
When the Premier League returns to action next week, Arsenal travel to face Sheffield United on Monday night.
The Gunners are currently on a five-game unbeaten streak that they will look to continue at Bramall Lane.
However, it looks unlikely that Ozil will be selected to take on Chris Wilder's men, with a return to action in the Europa League three days later more likely.
