Mesut Ozil Exploded Into An Angry Rant Following Arsenal's Defeat To Brighton
Mesut Ozil was videoed exploding into a rant following Arsenal's 2-1 defeat to Brighton yesterday evening.
Arsenal haven't won in their last nine games and are languishing in 10th place.
Their current plight has clearly got to Ozil who was filmed arguing with Per Mertesacker as he left the Emirates Stadium turf at full-time.
The 31-year-old was shouting "Sacker, sacker, sacker!" and looked visibly frustrated with the interim assistant manager.

Matteo Guendouzi attempted to calm Ozil down but he was visibly frustrated.
Unai Emery was sacked as manager last Friday but 'The Gunners' are yet to experience any kind of new manager bounce.
Club legend Freddie Ljungberg has stepped in on an interim basis but he's not won either of his first two games in charge.
Ozil has often been criticised for his lack of fighting spirit on the pitch and looking uninterested.
Arsenal legend Tony Adams defended the German following the game and stated it showed 'a bit of spirit'.
Per The Mirror, the former Arsenal captain said:
"I don't mind that actually. There's a little bit of spirit there. I don't mind that".
But the 53-year-old did wonder if the World Cup winner could have had that attitude during the game to get a positive result.
"Maybe he should have done it before the game. Before the game take that attitude on to the pitch.
"The game's gone now, it's all over.
"If he'd got the frustration out before the game and say 'I'm really go and run around and do my stuff today'. He's frustrated, obviously."
Brighton took the lead through Adam Webster in the first half and 'The Seagulls' dominated.
The home side leveled early in the second half through Alexandre Lacazette but they never settled.
David Luiz did have the ball in the net but VAR ruled him to be offside.
Neal Maupay found the net with a header ten minutes from time to give Graham Potter's side a well deserved win.
Arsenal were booed off the pitch by their fans and it could be a long winter for them.
They face Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United in their busy festive schedule and it's entirely feasible they could be in the bottom three.
Who do you think will be Arsenal's new manager?
