Arsenal Fans Hammer ‘Myth’ Mesut Ozil For Disappearing in Another Big Game

Arsenal Fans Hammer ‘Myth’ Mesut Ozil For Disappearing in Another Big Game

Mesut Ozil failed to really lay a glove on Bayern Munich in Arsenal‘s Champions League fixture tonight, and it’s fair to say Gooners everywhere might have seen enough of the German playmaker.

Despite going in level at 1-1 at half-time, Bayern came roaring out in the second-half and proceeded to destroy Arsene Wenger’s men and eventually win 5-1.

Alexis Sanchez looked bright early on, and it was the Chilean who scored, but Ozil was a non-entity, and given supporters had invested so much into getting a decent result in tonight’s last-16 first-leg, the World Cup winner’s display has been crucified on social media.

If we were him, we certainly wouldn’t be checking Twitter on the flight home:

Ozil’s contract runs out in the summer of 2018, and it’s been well documented that the club are trying to negotiate with him – but should they? Is he really what the club need right now? Or is it harsh to single him out?
