Arsenal’s Ozil savages Tottenham in brutal tweet – but fans immediately hit back
Mesut Ozil’s final season at Arsenal is set to end on a sour note after he was left out of Mikel Arteta’s Premier League and Europa League squads this term.
The German ace, whose staggering £350,000-a-week contract expires this summer, has been frozen out by Arteta and is therefore on the verge of leaving to join Fenerbahce in the January transfer window.
Yet regardless of the unfortunate end to his eight-year Gunners career, he would still never consider switching his north London allegiance to Tottenham – even if it was the only option on the table.
While completing a Q&A on Twitter, Ozil was asked whether he would join Spurs or retire if Arsenal’s bitter rivals were the only club to offer him a contract.
The midfielder clearly didn’t find the question difficult and replied: “Easy question. Retire!”
Spurs fans were quick to fire back at Ozil, with some insisting the club would never sign him anyway.
“You might as well [retire] as you wouldn’t make the team,” said one.
Another said: “You wouldn’t get [a contract offer] from us”.
“You wouldn’t make our u18s,” posted a third.
While one quipped: “You’re already retired”.
Reports suggest Ozil is on the verge of signing for Fenerbahce after agreeing a three-year deal with the Turkish club.
His proposed move would bring an end to the long-running transfer saga which intensified when he was left out of Arsenal’s squad for the 2020/21 campaign.
Speaking before the Gunners’ FA Cup win over Newcastle at the weekend, Arteta hinted that his Emirates exit is edging closer.
When asked if Ozil could feature in the game, the Spaniard said: “We will decide what is happening in the next few days. A decision has to be made when you have to register or not register players, when you have to play them or not play them all the time.
