Photo: Per Mertesacker’s outrage on Mesut Ozil for ignoring the away fans

Arsenal suffered a humiliating 6-3 defeat at the hands of Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. The result saw City closing the gap with the Gunners to just three points at the top of the table.


It was indeed a frustrating afternoon for Arsenal fans and the players. After the final whistle was blown a dejected Mesut Ozil was seen walking off the pitch all alone, until he was checked by his German national team-mate Per Mertesacker.

The German defender reminded him of his duty to respect the away fans and shouted at him for ignoring the Arsenal fans. Indeed, that was a leadership attitude shown by the towering defender but many feels instead of hollering at him publicly (though could have done out of emotion) Mertesacker should have politely told him in the dressing room.
