Arsenal fans are largely saying the same thing as the club’s official Twitter account wished Gunners star Mesut Ozil a happy birthday.
The German playmaker turns 31 today and clearly remains a big fan favourite at the Emirates Stadium despite seeing a lot less playing time this season.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has notably left Ozil out of a number of his matchday squads lately, and also seemed to start phasing him out of his first-team last year as well.
Ozil remains a top creative player with the ability to decide a game with a moment of magic, but it remains to be seen if we’ll get many more glimpses of him in a red and white shirt.
This lot certainly hope they do, as many fans sent messages back to AFC’s account calling on manager Emery to play the former Real Madrid man a bit more often.
Will the manager get the message? We’ll have to wait and see, but the message is loud and clear…
FREE MY KING ASAP @UnaiEmery_

Dear @UnaiEmery_ you really need to start playing Ozil with Pepe and Auba and Saka or Lacazette.
Enough of this vendetta.
PS: Happy Birthday @MesutOzil1088
