Mesut Ozil has apologised to Arsenal’s travelling fans after he skulked off at full-time of the 6-3 defeat at Manchester City without thanking them for their support.
Caught on camera getting an angry earful from Per Mertesacker for his nonchalant attitude, the German international today set the record straight admitting that he let the frustration of yesterday’s defeat get the better of him.
Writing on Facebook, the summer signing explained: “Sorry I didn’t thank the fans at the end of the game! You have been brilliant to me and I know you had travelled a long way and spent your money to support us.
“I was upset with the result and know I should have come to you to say ‘thank you’ and I know it is a big Arsenal tradition win, lose or draw.”
Arsene Wenger brushed off the incident in his post-match press conference stating: “The Germans will sort that out between themselves don’t worry.”
No doubt the BFG will be rattling his fine jar in the direction of Ozil on Monday morning.
