Mesut Ozil Continues Piers Morgan Twitter Rivalry With Another Scathing Putdown
Mesut Ozil has taken another dig at famous Arsenal fan Piers Morgan to reignite one of 2020's biggest rivalries.
The playmaker and shared an image on Twitter captioned: "The feeling of having fans behind you... #grateful #bestfans #hardtimes."
But Morgan took exception to Ozil's comments and replied: "Real Arsenal fans aren't behind you. You're our Paul Pogba - massively overpaid, massively under-performing, & shockingly overinflated sense of your own importance. #truth."
Ozil then snapped back with: "Piers, buddy, are you still bitter from the other day? [laughing emoji]It seems like you're not a big fan of World Champions [German flag and trophy emoji.] I wish you would see as good as you hear thing [phone and ear emoji.]
Piers, buddy, are you still bitter from the other day?:joy:It seems like you're not a big fan of World Champions :flag_de::flag_fr::trophy: I wish you would see as good as you hear things :telephone::ear: https://t.co/oIka73MdfK- Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) December 7, 2020
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta opted to leave Ozil out of his 25-man Premier League squad despite the 32-year-old earning £350,000-per-week.
Morgan poked fun at this in his response and said: "Mesut, 'buddy', it's a long way from being a World Champion to only getting a game on Play Station. Enjoy your day."
Both men got into it last month prior to Arsenal's 0-0 draw with Leeds United. Ozil tweeted "Let's gooooo" to support his teammates, to which Morgan said "I wish you would."

Ozil then referenced allegations of phone hacking while Morgan was Daily Mirror editor, something the 55-year-old denies having any part of, asking if it was really him who tweeted.
Pressure continues to mount on Arsenal following a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby on Sunday.
The club are currently 15th in the Premier League and are statistically one of the worst attacking sides in the top-flight.
When asked how his side will turn it around against Burnley next weekend, Arteta told Arsenal's official website: "By scoring goals. Very simple. We need to score goals. If not, it's unsustainable.
"It doesn't matter what we do in the other departments on the pitch, if we don't score goals, we can do nothing. So we need to put the ball in the net, urgently.
"In terms of the performance they did everything that I asked them to do, absolutely everything. We played a way that I believe we had to play this game. You look at all our stats, they were in our favour, but at the end of the day it is about putting the ball in the box.
"The first situation they had, from 30 yards they put it in the top corner. You have to applaud it. The second one, Thomas has to come off, we can not fill the gap that he should be in and we get done.
"Just before we had an open situation to score a goal as well. After that, in this moment, normally the team will fall. And the team got better after the first one, the team got better after the second one. "
