Ozil forged a reputation as one of the world’s best playmakers during his time at Real Madrid and continued to impress when he first joined Arsenal.
Over the last two years he’s struggled to hit top form on a regular basis though and that initially came amid serious doubts over where his future lay.
Mesut Ozil put pen to paper on a new contract during the January transfer window and Arsenal fans will be hoping he gets back into the groove soon.
Petit has now taken aim at the Germany international, with his views reflecting those of plenty of the Emirates faithful.
And he made clear he’s not a fan of Ozil’s inconsistent displays for the Gunners, despite naming him.
“In the current Arsenal team… I have no idea… Ozil when he actually wants to be a player,” he replied.
Petit’s response provoked a flurry of comments from Arsenal fans taking part in the session.
“So it’s not just us fans who thinks this…” wrote one.
“Savage,” added another.
“Lol…. the shaaddeeee,” quipped a third.
“Classless by a an ex player,” said a disgruntled supporter.
Ozil will be eager to make his mark when Arsenal take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger’s side sit sixth in the Premier League ahead of the showdown with their old rivals.
