Ozil showed more passion off the pitch than on it

He initially refused doctor Gary O’Driscoll’s request, before swearing at him and then leaving his stud marks on a door which he kicked in frustration.

After being threatened with a fine, the angry midfielder reluctantly agreed to be tested.

Ozil believes he is too frequently targeted for testing.

However, the incident also highlights the general frustration at the club.

Tunnel bust-up highlights Mesut Ozil’s growing frustration at Arsenal

The 28-year-old’s future at the Emirates remains in doubt, with his contract due to expire at the end of next season.

He is said to have a £280,000-a-week deal on the table, but is yet to put pen to paper.

Ozil feels he has been made a scapegoat for the Gunners’ under par season.

The FA Cup final appears to be the last chance for Arsenal to salvage something from a disappointing season for Arsenal.

Although at this point many fans expect the worst.
