Ozil comments laughable: Arsenal great Ian Wright

"Why haven't you signed yet?"

Ozil took to social media on Saturday evening to hit out at former players who had been criticising his performances of late. When I've played well, I hear you sing my song, and this makes me incredibly proud, giving me goosebumps every time.

The main focal points of the criticism stem round Ozil's body language and "lack of leadership qualities" when Arsenal are going through a bad patch.

Ozil has now received some blowback for what he posted on Facebook, via former Arsenal man Ian Wright. It's clear that someone who has made the most final third passes completed (3015), created the most chances (409), made the most successful crosses (229) and recorded the most assists (42) in the Premier League since joining in 2013 is undoubtedly a world class player whose statistics can not be argued with.

"We're not talking about former players criticising a team that's charging up the league and winning leagues".

Norway belatedly showed some signs of life as Ole Selnaes fired narrowly off-target and Mats Hummels deflected a low ball just wide but Germany were soon on the front foot again as Gomez's diving header converted Joshua Kimmich's cross to complete a thumping victory for the holders, whose form looks ominous for those hoping to relieve them of the trophy in Russian Federation. 1-1 draws are much tougher, and the smaller clubs also have very strong teams that can easily catch you out. That they're unbelievable, in the boardroom, the boss, and the way they're playing?

"I've had so many great moments in the last four years and I appreciate what this club means to the people of London, the United Kingdom and all over the world". "Having a go at me, I'm being neutral".

"Who else is he talking about, Thierry [Henry]?"

Ozil recently celebrated his fourth year anniversary as a Gooner, however recent seasons have seen the playmaker receive a lot of flak.

"A player that is not actually performing on the pitch is coming out, calling people out, and he's not signing a contract".

"We all feel the same because we're all passionate and we all love the club", he said.

"What are we supposed to say?"
