EA Sports Throw Shade On Mesut Ozil In FIFA 20 Promotion
By Tom Sanders
Mesut Ozil's standoff with Unai Emergy has quickly emerged as one of the rivalries of the season.
Once the golden boy at The Emirates and a real fan favourite, the German midfielder has become an increasingly isolated figure at Arsenal and has failed to impress manager Unai Emery.
Most recently he was left out of the travelling squad for the Gunner's Europa league clash with Vitoria, and it looks like things are only going to go further downhill from here.
All things considered it's not been a great season for the German international, and now even EA Sports have popped up to have a dig at him too.
With FIFA 20 having been released for about a month now, EA Sports have introduced an exciting new Ultimate Team (FUT) mode in-keeping with the Halloween spooky spirit, which they've named 'Ultimate Scream'.
But when promoting Ozil's new 'Scream Card' for FIFA 20's Halloween promotion, the unlucky Gunner was labelled as a 'ghost' by EA's social team, which provoked quite a reaction on Twitter.
All jokes aside though, the new card is pretty impressive, and is available through FIFA's weekly objectives.
With 82 pace, 82 shooting and 88 passing it's a worthy addition to any FUT team, although his overall rating of 84 is the lowest Ozil's stats have been since his first season at Real Madrid in FIFA 11.
Back in FIFA 17 Ozil was one of the highest ranked midfielders in the world and had an overall rating of 89, but has been on a steady downward trend for some time now and looks unlikely to regain his early Arsenal form.
Will he move on in the summer, or is Ozil doomed to haunt the Emirates dressing room for the rest of his career?
