The Gunners boss Arsene Wenger slammed the 27-year-old for his comments however, former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has supported the Germany international.
“I think Mesut realises it will take a massive capitulation from Leicester City and Tottenham and arsenal will have to win all of their games,” Ian Wright stated live on Match of the Day (BBC).
“I think he is right to say what he is saying.”
