Some Arsenal fans seem to believe that superstar Mesut Ozil took a shot at boss Unai Emery on social media last night. The pair were filmed having a tense conversation.
During Arsenal’s training session on Wednesday ahead of their Europa League clash with Vitoria, manager Unai Emery was filmed having a tense conversation with playmaker Mesut Ozil.
The pressure is certainly mounting on Emery after a shock 1-0 defeat to promoted side Sheffield United on Monday night.
Of course our unflattering performance led to even more calls for Ozil to be given a chance in the team, the 31-year-old has only made two appearances for us across all competitions this season.
We missed a glorious chance to stay at third place in the league on Monday night.
We had the opportunity to build a small gap ahead of Chelsea and Leicester City who look to be our prime contenders for a top four place this season.
Mirror Football shared a video of the lengthy training ground chat between the pair:

Last night Ozil posted a cryptic post on social media which seems to point to the plot thickening between himself and Emery:

Some fans believe Ozil’s post was a slight dig towards Emery:
Unai Emery sacked soon. Ozil not messing around 😭

There’s a chance that some fans have blown this entire incident out of proportion, it hardly reminisces the furious rant between Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho last season.
It’s possible that the lengthy chat is actually a positive for Arsenal, could Emery have been discussing instructions to Ozil as he’s planning to give him an opportunity against Vitoria tonight?
We’ve played some brilliant attacking football in the Europa League so far this season, this evening’s clash is perfect for Ozil to get back his match sharpness.
We have to make better use of the squad available to us, Ozil’s achievements in the game are far too impressive for him to be left on the bench all the time.
