Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Mesut Ozil would never make it into a Jurgen Klopp side due to his inconsistent work rate.
The German playmaker is widely regarded as the Gunners' most talented player on his day, but Redknapp believes that questions over his work rate would prevent him from ever playing for Klopp's Liverpool.
"The thing about Liverpool's midfield is that you can't be a passenger. Whoever plays in the midfield, if you don't run the length of the field and push and press, you're not going to play," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
"Not because he's not skilful enough, but I'm on about every single game when you've got to go and win the ball back. It's not been easy as he's been around playing for one of the worst Arsenal teams we've seen in many years as well.
"Yes, his talented is unfulfilled, but he's won a World Cup. I'd have given anything to win that. When you see what he's capable of with his assists, could he do more? Absolutely, and there's a lot of frustration watching him. But he'll reflect on his career and think he brought a lot of joy to people and think he had a great career."
Ozil has made 23 appearances for Arsenal this season, scoring one goal and registering three assists.
