Still dividing the fanbase after all this time. Quite phenomenal tbh. The bloke has a point though, we all remember the savage ‘Trust The Process’ tweet, which some Özil ultras insisted was actually a show of support for Arsenal and was not a piss take.

Imagine if Arteta or Edu were out there posting cr@p ever time Özil dialled in another atrocious performance. The double standard is unreal. Loved him as a player but Özil was visibly toxic in his decline. Shockingly unprofessional.

That’s a harsh assessment. Nobody knows the whole story of why Özil was excluded from the team, but he was obviously a little upset by it. He kept quiet for long periods and when he was finally got rid of, a ‘Trust the Process’ tweet is a pretty mild come back at Arteta.

Yeah it probably is quite harsh, but I don't like his tactics. Players get dropped all the time, you don't see Calum Chambers going on the attack on social media do you. Whereas Özil seems to try and play this victim card game where he is disingenously offering to pay Gunnersaurus wages, or whatever. Don't get me wrong, the club's not blameless either, but Özil was earning £350k per week - the only thing he had to suffer was not playing football. He was trying to fluff up his own image at the expense of others rather than knuckling down and actually trying to improve his game and justify the money we invested into him.

Compare his behaviour to Willian for example and it's night and day. Willian was actually more productive than Özil in his last season as well but he never felt the need to go on the attack to deflect criticism.

Funny how the article mentions their win in December but makes no mention of their defeat in the other game. Lol.
