Aubameyang Thinks Mesut Ozil Looks Like Megan Rapinoe And He's Spot On

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang likened Mesut Ozil to Women's World Cup star Megan Rapinoe after the German showed off his newly bleached hair.

When someone gets a ridiculous new haircut people often sarcastically ask if they've lost a bet, and that's exactly what's happened to Ozil to give him his new hairstyle.

Ozil lost a bet to Alexandre Lacazette to put him in the position and, on Instagram story, another Arsenal teammate, Emerick-Aubameyang, compared him to USA Women's star Rapinoe.

Aubameyang's suggestion that 'now I know how they won' is a bit of an insult to the US Women's team considering the form Ozil has been in the last few years.

The Germany midfielder, a World Cup winner himself in 2014, has often been accused of going missing in the big games for the Gunners in the past.

However last season, just months after signing a huge new deal, the former Real Madrid man found himself out of Unai Emery's team and warming the bench more often than not as the north London side finished fifth in the Premier League.

Rapinoe has become a polarising figure for her personality and outspoken views but there is little doubt that she's been one of the stars of the summer both on and off the pitch.

The 34-year-old, who made her international debut in 2006, won both the Golden Ball, for best player at the tournament, and Golden Boot, for top scorer with six goals as the US beat Netherlands in the final to win the World Cup.

So far Arsenal's summer has not been as successful as Rapinoe's as they've failed to add the players they need to compete for the Premier League's top four and time is running out.

What do you make of Ozil's new look?
