Mesut Ozil has taken aim at former Arsenal boss Unai Emery by claiming 'under Mikel Arteta I'm playing' when asked about differences between the two coaches.
Ozil and Emery had fallen out by the time the Spaniard left the 'Gunners' in November last year.
Arteta has used the German more since his arrival the following month and the World Cup winner couldn't resist a dig at Emery.

:speech_balloon: تحت قيادة أرتيتا، أنا ألعب. :sweat_smile:

Ozil hasn't committed his future to the North London outfit past his contract expiring in 2021.
But the 31-year-old has insisted he is focused on Arteta's plan to rejuvenate the club, who currently sit 10th in the table.
"After this season I have one more year [on my contract]," Ozil told reporters in Dubai per Evening Standard.
"So after that I don't know what will happen because I can't see the future.
"The thing what I can do is give everything for the team, for myself, to be successful and let's see what happens in the future.
"As I said before, what will happen in the future I don't know yet. What I know is I will give everything for this club, for my team-mates.
"You know we have had a difficult season, we know it was a hard season for us but we want to win games again, to take the points.
"This year we have had difficult times but I think we are in a good way."
Where do you think Arsenal will finish in the table this season?
