Mesut Ozil Fires Back At Arsenal Legends Who Criticise Him
Arsenal contract rebel Mesut Ozil has hit back at Gunners legends who frequently criticise him.
The 28-year-old's commitment to the Emirates club has been questioned in recent months as the player has refused to pen to paper on a new deal.
The Germany international, who has often been criticised for sub-standard performances when things are not going right, has hit back at his critics, especially those who use to play for the London club.
"Personally, I've had to accept a lot of criticism during my time in London," Ozil wrote in a Facebook post.
"Too expensive, too greedy, bad body language, and lacking fight – this is what people have said about me.
"Some of these comments are made by those who do not know me, some are made by former players – both successful and unsuccessful during their time here at the club.
"Although criticism is something that all football players have to deal with, I nevertheless expected legends to behave like legends – my advice to these former Gunners is to stop talking and start supporting."
Arsenal have not had a good start to their Premier League campaign – they have won just one of their first three fixtures.
Do you think it is wise for Ozil to be having a moan at the club's former players? Have your say in the comments section below.
