Arsenal Fan Holds Up 'Bring Back Mesut' Sign At Emirates Stadium

Arsenal Fan Holds Up 'Bring Back Mesut' Sign At Emirates Stadium

An Arsenal fan displayed a sign calling for Mesut Ozil to brought back into the fold this evening.

For the first time in eight months Gunners fans were allowed back in the Emirates - with 2,000 being spaced out in the stands for the Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna.

Club mascot Gunnersaurus was also present after a lengthy lay-off, but there was no sign of Ozil once again.

Arsenal's top earner on wages of £350,000-a-week, Ozil hasn't made a single appearance this season and was omitted from the Premier League and Europa League squads by Mikel Arteta.

In fact, he's not kicked a ball since March after being completely frozen out.

And one supporter decided to make their case for the German being called up again when he held a 'bring back Mesut' sign and managed to get on TV.

Arsenal ran out 4-1 winners in the Group B clash, with Alexandre Lacazette, Pablo Mari, Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith-Rowe all on the scoresheet in the first game back in front of supporters.

Arteta has always maintained that his call was made for footballing reasons and not because of a personal problem with the 32-year-old.

"It was just a football decision and my conscience is very calm because I have been really fair with him," Arteta told Sky Sports.

"My level of communication with him has been high, we know what to expect with each other.

He has had the opportunities like everybody else. I'm sad that I had to leave three players out of this list but I tried to look everybody in the eye and be comfortable with it.

"With Mesut, I have this feeling because I have been very straightforward since I arrived at this club.

"It's nothing related to [Ozil's] behaviour. It's my decision."
