Mesut Ozil, outcast from Arsenal, had a brutal exchange of views with Piers Morgan on social media on Sunday.
Ozil was banned from Arsenal’s 25-man Premier League squad earlier this season, despite putting pencil on paper on a £ 350,000-a-week contract two years ago.
Morgan and Ozil have been involved in a brutal back and forth on social media
The former Germany international hasn’t played a single minute for the North London club this season, but has become a vocal fan on the sidelines, offering his support to his teammates during their matches.
And on Sunday, longtime Gunners fan Morgan urged Ozil to leave the club in response to one of the German’s tweets.
Before Arsenal’s visit to Leeds, Ozil wrote: “We are going to goooooo… # COYG #YaGunnersYa”, to which the Good Morning Britain host replied: “I wish you would Mesut. For your sake and that of Arsenal. “
Ozil then brutally suggested that Morgan had been hacked with a light blow to the journalist, who has been accused of being a leading figure in the telephone hacking scandal that rocked the British media in 2011.
The former Mirror editor has consistently denied being personally involved in the scandal, where segments of the media were accused of engaging in police bribery and of exerting undue influence in the search for stories.
