Mesut Ozil: Apologised for his actions at the end of the game

Mesut Ozil: Apologised for his actions at the end of the game

The German playmaker headed straight for the dressing room after the final whistle at the Etihad Stadium while his team-mates went over to applaud travelling supporters.

His actions appeared to incur the wrath of defender Per Mertesacker, who remonstrated with his fellow German as he left the field.

Now Ozil, who has had a huge influence since his deadline-day arrival from Real Madrid, accepts he should not have done as he did.

In a statement on his website, www.mesutoezil.com, the 25-year-old said: "Sorry I didn't thank the fans at the end of the game!

"You have been brilliant to me and I know you had travelled a long way and spent your money to support us.

"I was upset with the result and know I should have come to you to say 'thank you' and I know it is a big Arsenal tradition win, lose or draw."

The defeat at City saw the Gunners' lead at the top of the Premier League cut to two points.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
