Arsenal hero Emmanuel Petit has revealed his brutal take on inconsistent ace Mesut Ozil.
Ozil forged a reputation as one of the world’s best playmakers during his time at Real Madrid and continued to impress when he first joined Arsenal.
Over the last two years he’s struggled to hit top form on a regular basis though and that initially came amid serious doubts over where his future lay.
Mesut Ozil put pen to paper on a new contract during the January transfer window and Arsenal fans will be hoping he gets back into the groove soon.
Petit has now taken aim at the Germany international, with his views reflecting those of plenty of the Emirates faithful.
Taking part in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Reddit, Petit was asked to pick his favourite player currently at Arsenal.
And he made clear he’s not a fan of Ozil’s inconsistent displays for the Gunners, despite naming him.
“In the current Arsenal team… I have no idea… Ozil when he actually wants to be a player,” he replied.
Petit’s response provoked a flurry of comments from Arsenal fans taking part in the session.
“So it’s not just us fans who thinks this…” wrote one.
“Savage,” added another.
“Lol…. the shaaddeeee,” quipped a third.
“Classless by a an ex player,” said a disgruntled supporter.
Ozil will be eager to make his mark when Arsenal take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger’s side sit sixth in the Premier League ahead of the showdown with their old rivals.
Ozil congratulates team mates after defeat to Chelsea
Mesut Ozil has congratulated his Arsenal team-mates after their 2-0 win against Chelsea, despite being left out again by manager Unai Emery, uniquesports reports.
The German has not featured for the Gunners since a 1-1 draw with Brighton on Boxing Day and was an unused substitute as goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny gave the Gunners a vital win against their top four rivals.
“Congratulations to the whole team tonight.
“Well played, Gunners,” Ozil wrote on Instagram.
Arsenal’s win was somewhat dampened by the injury sustained by Hector Bellerin.
The Spaniard went over without contact and had to be stretchered off in the second half with a suspected knee ligament injury.
Ozil wished the right-back a “speedy recovery”.

When asked if he was close to securing Suarez’s arrival, Emery responded: “I know the club is working with different possibilities if [it] can help us for these four months for our competition.
“I know it’s a difficult window for the transfer market and if a player is coming to help us I am happy.
“But the club is doing that and I am going to wait.”
My pre-match talk with Arsenal – Unai Emery
Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has revealed his pre-match team talk, before their 2-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday evening, uniquesports reports.
Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny scored the goals in the first half, as the Gunners claimed all three points at the Emirates.
“We want to find the same performance, ideas, mentality whether we’re playing home and away.
“I think every player contributed with work. This attitude to be together when we have the ball, find the space and find the moments to attack.
“We spoke before the match about running more than them as this team run a lot. We were speaking about running to cover the ball and transition very quickly.
“It’s difficult to keep this pressing for 90 minutes and the match changed in the second half. The clean sheet today is very important and to show our supporters that we can be optimistic,” Emery told Sky Sports.
