Ozil issues apology to Arsenal fans following ‘disappointing’ defeat

Arsenal players are heading into the international break in arguably the worst possible mood after Sunday’s humiliating defeat to Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger’s side conceded four goals and failed to muster a single shot on target across 90 minutes at Anfield.

Mesut Ozil was one of the players who faced criticism from pundits and fans alike after the final whistle.

The German World Cup winner has been accused before of going missing in big games, and once again, he struggled to make an impact.

There was a lack of desire among the squad, and a failure to track back when needed to help defend against a team filled with attacking flair and speed.

Ozil tends to keep his thoughts to himself post-match, but due to the severity of the result and lacklustre performance, the 28-year-old took to social media to air his views.

In a post on Instagram, the midfielder apologised to the fans for a “frustrating” day.

Blame us, shout at us, criticize us, but I'm also very disappointed about today's game 😠. We wanted to achieve a positive result before the international break but we were simply not good enough during the 90 minutes and Liverpool deserved the win without a doubt. Usually I'm too angry to post on social media after such frustrating days like today, but I don't want to let this match go uncommented before traveling to the DFB Team. Nevertheless… Gunners, I'm sorry – especially for the fans who travelled all the way up to Liverpool to see us fighting. But we will try everything to improve in the next game and bounce back from the disappointment we are all feeling at the moment 👊🏼 #LFCvAFC @arsenal
