Reports: Mesut Ozil In Verbal Spat With Angry Fans As Germany Exit 2018 FIFA World Cup

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil reportedly had a verbal spat with angry Germany fans after Die Mannschaft's humiliating exit from the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Click through the gallery above to see images of Ozil’s angry reaction towards the angry supporters.

The 2014 champions, who needed a win in their final game to advance to the round of 16, ended bottom of Group F after a shock 2-0 defeat to Korea Republic on Wednesday afternoon.

The first-round elimination was Germany's first since 1938 and their supporters in the stadium were left fuming with their side's poor performance.

According to the Daily Mirror, fans close to the tunnel area vented their frustration at the distraught German players, with Ozil eventually exchanging words with some of them.  

The 29-year-old was reportedly standing up for his teammates and had to be restrained by one of his team's backroom staff members.

A Germany coach was also seen shouting back at the dissatisfied fans, who themselves were being restrained by stewards.

Following the disappointing result, coach Joachim Low refused to blame his side's poor display on Ozil alone.

"It was not only Ozil, but some other players also did not perform as they usually would. I take responsibility for that and stand up for that, but I thought it was a good team," he said, according to the Daily Mirror.

"I did not think Thomas Muller had been that convincing in the first two matches and I wanted to make a point there (by dropping him).

"Towards the finish, when we realised we needed a goal, we took a defender out late on and that meant we became less structured, but we could not wait, we had to risk.

"We needed to throw things forward, and it opened things up in defence."

Low said he preferred Julian Bandt over Sane, then on the very first game he put Brandt on bench and play a sluggish Ozil and an old poor passing Khedira. Also u bench an inform Marc andre ter- Steven for an unfit Manuel Neur who played less than 10 games for Bayern whole season.

Sane was named the ...PL Youngst player of the season ....and in football you need young stars who can run and make dribbles those sane has ..but the couch choosen Draxler who was lacking game time at his club ...so soccer is like that ...If choosing by favourites. ..

But Ozil has been dead for years now, Why did they even include him in the first place.
