Arsenal Fans Have a Conspiracy About Mesut Ozil’s Fitness and His Love of Fortnite

Arsenal supporters have been cooking up a rather crazy conspiracy theory about star player Mesut Ozil and his love of Fortnite – but it isn’t the most unbelievable hypothesis ever put forward on social media.

Undoubtedly a world class talent when he’s fit and on form, Ozil has struggled this season under new Gunners boss Unai Emery and was dropped for last weekend’s Premier League win over Bournemouth, and was conspicuously absent in yesterday’s North London Derby win over bitter rivals Tottenham.

The official reason given for the World Cup winner’s omission was because of a back injury picked up in training but some fans, led by the high-profile Arsenal account Le Grove, reckon his fondness for late night gaming sessions could be playing a part.

To be fair, playing almost 5,000 matches of any game online is a helluva lot for anyone, let alone a professional athlete – but what do you think?

Could Ozil – a £300,000 per-week footballer really be putting his career at risk by gaming too much?

Let us know in the comments section below…
