Mesut Ozil was scolded by Arsenal fans who described the ex-Real Madrid star as lacking enough heart and passion to lead the Gunners to victory, after losing 4-1 to Chelsea in the Europa League final.
The 30-year-old started the game and was expected to provide Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with ammunition to fire at Chelsea Keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

However, the former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich star was a shadow in Baku Olympic Stadium and failed to live up to expectation in the final played in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Worse yet, was Ozil's opposing number 10 Eden Hazard, who executed his playmaking role exquisitely; delivering assists, creating chances and scoring two goals to put the game to bed.
The stark contrast between the two number 10s rubbed off Gunners fans the wrong way and they immediately declared the German a lost cause, calling for his immediate departure.

Other fans argued that it was Maurizio Sarri's excellent strategy that effectively utilised N'Golo Kante as a roaming midfielder that was Ozil undoing in Baku.
"Kante was fasting, Kante was not 100% fit but Kante was still able to prevent Ozil from playing," football fan Ademola Victor tweeted.

Once one of Europe's most formidable playmakers, the 30-year-old is not the same player he once was with some fans now describing him as a luxury player they cannot afford to have.
"Not much to say that hasn't been said. Shambolic display in that second half. Really feels like Arsenal have to be ruthless now. Ozil, Koscielny need to be replaced by fresh blood.
"Willock's cameo showed how ineffective Ozil was once again. Arsenal need much much more," Arsenal correspondent Charles Watts painfully admitted.
