Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil engaged in a brutal back and forth with Piers Morgan on social media on Sunday.
Ozil was excluded from Arsenal’s 25-man Premier League squad earlier this season, despite putting pen-to-paper on a mouth-watering £350,000-a-week deal just two years ago.
Morgan and Ozil have engaged in a brutal back and forth on social media
The former Germany international has not played a single minute for the north London club this term, but he has become a vocal fan on the sidelines, offering his support to his teammates throughout their matches.
And on Sunday, lifelong Gunners fan Morgan urged Ozil to leave the club in response to one of the German’s tweets.
Ahead of Arsenal’s visit to Leeds, Ozil wrote: “Let’s goooooo…#COYG #YaGunnersYa”, to which the Good Morning Britain presenter responded: “I wish you would, Mesut. For your sake and Arsenal’s.”
Ozil then brutally suggested Morgan had been hacked in a thinly-veiled swipe at the journalist, who has been accused of being a leading figure in the phone hacking scandal that shook British media in 2011.
Piers, was that really you, or was your phone hacked? https://t.co/g2GW6YTE8R

The former Mirror editor has always denied he was personally involved in the scandal, where segments of the media were accused of engaging in police bribery, and exercising improper influence in the pursuit of stories.
