Mesut Ozil Trolls Spurs Fans Over Lack Of Trophy Success

Mesut Ozil isn't always the most popular member of the Arsenal squad but fans will love him after he trolled rivals Spurs.

Arsenal once again won the FA Cup last season, stretching their record of most wins for a club to 14, whilst rivals Spurs failed to win silverware for the 12th year in-a-row.

Now Ozil, who didn't even play in the win over Chelsea at Wembley at the beginning of August, has stuck the boot into the Gunners' north London rivals about their lack of trophies.

In a Q&A session on Twitter, the 31-year-old was asked if he'd rather play for Spurs or retire, and he answered in a way that would have delighted fans of Mikel Arteta's side.

Ozil wasn't even at Wembley for the final, as he wasn't in the squad, and didn't make a single appearance for the club after football returned following the lockdown.

The player is earning £350,000-a-week but only made 23 appearances for the club last season and despite looking as if he doesn't feature in Arteta's plans he won't be leaving anytime soon.

Talking about his future last month, the player said, "I'll decide when I go, not other people. I didn't sign for two or three years, I signed for four and that should be respected by everyone.

"Things have obviously been difficult but I love Arsenal, I love to work there, I love the people in the club - the real people, those I've been with for a long time - and I love London, it's my home."

Ozil further trolled Spurs fans in the Q&A when he was asked who the best player he'd played with at Arsenal was. The World Cup winner said it was Mathieu Flamini, for his two goals against their north London rivals.

However the former Real Madrid star didn't include Flamini in a best XI of players he's played with and instead Santi Cazorla made an appearance as the only Arsenal player.

Whilst Ozil may claim he'd choose retirement over Spurs, it remains to be seen if his next start for Arsenal will come before or after their rivals next silverware.
