Mesut Ozil was surprisingly left out of the PFA Team of the Year which was announced yesterday.
The Germany international experinced his best season at Arsenal since joining for a club record fee of £42 million from Real Madrid back in September 2013.
The Team of the Year has been dominated by players from Tottenham and Leicester City. West Ham United’s Dimitri Payet has also been included in the team.
Arsenal fans were not pleased at their talisman being excluded and took to social media to voice their discontent.
So Mesut Ozil was one of the 6 nominees for player of the year but isn't even in the team of the year??? @PFA explain??

Mesut Ozil deserves the Team of the Year ahead of Payet

How can Mesut Ozil be nominated for PFA player of the year but not be in the PFA team of the year? Makes sense. 😒

Mesut Ozil not being in the team of the year is a travesty

6 goals and 18 assists. Mesut Ozil might never make a PFA Team of the Year.
