Morgan blasts Ozil as 'lazy manipulative £350,000-a-week wastrel'

‘You could have been a club legend but you just couldn’t be bothered. Bye’: Piers Morgan BLASTS Mesut Ozil as a ‘lazy manipulative £350,000-a-week wastrel’ as Arsenal terminate outcast’s contract early

  • Mesut Ozil is finally set to quit Arsenal after years of struggle with the playmaker
  • The Gunners have agreed to terminate the German’s contract six-months early
  • Piers Morgan has slammed Ozil’s attitude in London, which saw him frozen-out 
  • However, many fans have taken to Twitter to show their appreciation for him  

Mesut Ozil in red and his infamous £350,000-per-week deal are finished, sparking a hostile send-off from Piers Mogan who branded the star ‘lazy’ and ‘manipulative’.

Relations between Gooners and their top-earning talent have been strained for years, with Ozil yet to make a single appearance in any competition this season. 

The former Real Madrid midfielder is now set to join Fenerbahce, ending an era at the Emirates. Ozil has spent seven-and-a-half years in north London but has barely contributed for the last three.

‘Loved @MesutOzil1088 when he first came to Arsenal,’ Morgan wrote on Twitter. 

‘World class player with a sublime natural talent. Now I can’t wait to see the back of the lazy manipulative £350,000-a-week wastrel. 

‘You could have been a club legend, Mesut – but you just couldn’t be bothered. Bye.’

Once the Premier League’s assist king, Ozil’s has been a stunning decline since he was rated as one of the world’s top technical players.

Ozil has failed to gain the trust of the Gunners’ last three managers, including Mikel Arteta

Despite failing to wheel-out an ounce of that talent during a disastrous period of Europa League misery for Arsenal, Ozil has held onto a loyal core of fans and remained a heated topic of debate.   

‘Thanks for the good times Ozil. You’ll remain a legend at Arsenal,’ @mndukwe wrote as the news broke.  

‘It is so unfortunate that it had to end this way but this is the right move for both, the club and Mesut Ozil. Thank you for everything, Mesut. You are a club legend,’ @m_anasmalik added. 

The World Cup winner walks away after 254 appearances for the Gunners, bagging four FA Cups including two talismanic performances in the 2015 and 2017 finals, plus 44 goals and 77 assists. 

Ozil can finally try to resurrect his career in Turkey after being frozen-out by the Gunners 

Consistency was the No.10’s downfall and it was evident in his stats. At Real Madrid the playmaker provided three more assists (80) despite only spending three full seasons in LaLiga. He was providing for Cristiano Ronaldo, not Olivier Giroud and Alexandre Lacazette, though.  

Ozil supported Fenerbahce as a youngster and looks set to join the Super Lig club, revealing in his Ask Mesut Q&A: ‘There are two countries I want to play football in before I retire: Turkey and USA. 

‘If I went to Turkey, I could only go to Fenerbahce.’
