TWEETS: Ozil, Campbell + Podolski React To Arsenal Drawing Besiktas

By on August 8, 2014

Arsenal were drawn to play Besiktas in the play-off round of the Champions League on Friday morning.

We will take on the Turkish outfit away from home in Istanbul on the 19th August before welcoming them to the Emirates for the return leg on the 27th.

It wasn’t the best draw we could have got as Turkey is always a tricky place to visit and we’ll no doubt face a hostile atmosphere, but I’m still confident we’ll get the job done over two legs.

Some of the players have reacted on Twitter to the draw, with Lukas Podolski, Mesut Ozil and Joel Campbell all having their say on facing Besiktas.

Here’s what the boys said:
