Former CNN host, Piers Morgan, has labelled Mesut Ozil “lazy” and manipulative”, insisting he will never be an Arsenal legend.
Ozil is on the brink of leaving the Gunners, after agreeing to terminate his contract early.
The 32-year-old will join Fenerbahce this January.
Relations between Arsenal and Ozil have been strained for years, with the German yet to make a single appearance in any competition this season.
Ozil has spent seven-and-a-half years in north London but has barely contributed for the last three.
Morgan tweeted: “Loved @MesutOzil1088 when he first came to Arsenal.
“World class player with a sublime natural talent. Now I can’t wait to see the back of the lazy manipulative £350,000-a-week wastrel.
“You could have been a club legend, Mesut – but you just couldn’t be bothered. Bye.”
