‘Losing all credibility’ – Arsenal fans shocked after legend’s reaction to Mesut Ozil contract

On talent alone, Mesut Ozil is undoubtedly one of the best players at Arsenal. He hasn’t always been as influential as desired, but he’s got a new contract now.

As reported by The Guardian, it has been claimed that he has signed a new long-term deal at the Emirates which will see him earn a staggering £350,000-a-week.

Given his creative qualities, experience in the Premier League and form over the years, he is undoubtedly a pivotal part of Arsene Wenger’s plans moving forward.

Especially having now added pace, goals and creativity around him with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ozil should ultimately now flourish and at 29, this is the perfect stage of his career to really become an influential symbol at Arsenal.

However, some Gunners fans have been left shocked by the way in which Ian Wright has reacted to the news that Ozil has signed a renewal, as seen in the image below taken from Instagram when he was asked about the deal.

That’s not quite the reaction that many were expecting, especially as shown in the tweet below, that Wright was in support of the German international penning a new agreement not so long ago.

It seems some of the Arsenal faithful think that Wright has a personal issue with Ozil, but that won’t matter too much to the latter as he’s now got a new contract, is a focal point in the side and ultimately in a good place to challenge for major honours.

If the Gunners can add defensive solidity to the team moving forward as that remains their glaring weakness as evidenced by their defensive record in the Premier League so far this season, then all concerned will surely be hopeful that it leads to success on the pitch which is the most important thing.
