Ian Wright Hit Back At Ozil, Says “Sign A New Contract” If You Feel So Strongly About The Club

Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright has hit back at midfielder Mesut Ozil over his daring social media comments about former Arsenal players criticising his performance.

On Saturday, Ozil expressed his displeasure at how former Arsenal players criticise his performances, saying they should “stop talking and start supporting”.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live show, Wright said: “We are talking about a team that is under performing, not just team, people in the board room, the manager with decisions, everybody,”

“I’ve been on this show so many many times, I’ve protected him, I’ve protected Arsene Wenger and people have slaughtered me for it,”

Arsenal has started their 2017/18 Premier League campaign on a not so pleasant note, losing two out of the three games played so far with Mesut Ozil involved in Arsenal’s humiliating 4-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend.

“I will rather say to Mesut Ozil…sign a contract if you feel that strongly about people criticising the team because you are somebody who is integral to Arsenal’s success,”

“A player that is not actually performing on the pitch is coming out, calling people out and he is not signing a new contract, it’s laughable,” he concluded.
