'RESTED HALF OF LAST SEASON'

Arsenal fans troll Mesut Ozil after wearing training top with ‘best never rest’ slogan

German midfielder invites ridicule on social media as he is labelled 'lazy' and a 'player who goes missing at big games'

Mesut Ozil came in for plenty of stick during the Premier League season – now Arsenal fans are giving it to him large in the build-up to the World Cup.

For the German international has been wearing a training top with “Best Never Rest” on the back.

Ozil, 29, signed a new £350,000-a-week with the Gunners in mid-season to end speculation over his immediate future.

But his work rate has been frequently questioned by Arsenal supporters.

And former Gunner Martin Keown insisted Ozil was “not fit to wear the shirt” in the Europa League semi-final defeat to Atletico Madrid, adding: “He’s not conning me

“He wasn’t fit to wear the shirt for me tonight, and I have seen this a lot this season.”

Now Arsenal supporters have taken to social media to attack a major flaw on the back of Ozil’s training kit.

Another Twitter user declared: “Complete lies.”

All in all Ozil has been constantly labelled by pundits and fans alike as lazy sometimes, a player who goes missing at big games.

Next season the midfielder must play under play under newly-appointed Arsenal boss Unai Emery.
