Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has once again put himself under the spotlight by posting a cryptic tweet on wednesday soon after a video emerged from Arsenal’s latest training session which showed a frosty exchange between Ozil and Emery.
Ozil then took to Twitter posting an image of himself laughing during a training session with a message which read: “You make me laugh.”

Fans were bemused as to what the discussion could have been all about, but it seems like Ozil is finally making his frustrations known to the manager and has now also taken it to a public platform with his latest post.
The other possibility could be that Emery and Ozil were just having a passionate discussion on the training ground and just like many things on the internet, we are making a mountain out of a mole hill.
While it is not clear what the exchange between Emery and Ozil was all about, it appears to be something similar to what happened at Manchester United last season with Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba – and it was the Portuguese coach who ended up leaving Old Trafford.
Several months before Mourinho was sacked by United, a video went viral on social media showing a frosty exchange between the two men in training.
While Emery’s future as Arsenal manager does not look under threat for now the same cannot be said about Ozil’s future.
The 31-year-old has endured a difficult Premier League campaign so far, making just one appearance with manager Unai Emery seemingly against selecting him.
Many football experts and fans questioned Emery’s decision not to select Ozil for the game against Sheffield United on Monday despite being match fit, a game in which Arsenal lacked creativity in the final third and ended up losing 1-0.
