Mesut Ozil aims brutal dig at Tottenham after Carabao Cup final defeat
Former Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil could not resist a dig at their bitter rivals Tottenham following their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.
A late Aymeric Laporte header deservedly won it for City at Wembley and ensured Spurs' 13-year wait for a trophy would continue.
A number of Spurs players appeared devastated at full-time, with Heung-Min Son in tears on the pitch and Eric Dier giving an emotional post-match interview.
But there was clearly no sympathy from Ozil, who still obviously holds his old club close to his heart.
In a reference to Spurs' trophy cabinet after the game, Ozil tweeted: "It remains dusty…" along with an emoji of a trophy and wind blowing, much to the delight of Arsenal supporters.
Spurs last won silverware when they lifted the then-Carling Cup in 2008, and speaking to the club media Dier admitted this loss was particularly difficult to take.
"It was an opportunity to win a trophy and we've come up short," he said. "It has to drive you on. I'm not going to lie, this one is very tough because to not have a trophy in seven years here hurts me deeply. We just have to go again."
Ozil, meanwhile, is now at Turkish side Fenerbahce, and he was one of the first high-profile current players to speak out about the proposed European Super League.
He took to social media last week in the wake of the news to say: "Kids grow up dreaming to win the World Cup and the Champions League – not any Super League.
"The enjoyment of big games is that they only happen once or twice a year, not every week. Really hard to understand for all football fans out there."
