Mesut Ozil Stirs Up Debate Among Arsenal Fans After Controversially Revealing His Favorite Stadium To Play At

Arsenal Team News

Mesut Ozil took part in a Q&A session on his official Twitter account yesterday but one answer, in particular, caused quite a stir among Arsenal fans.

The playmaker of Turkish origin Mesut Ozil was asked what his favorite stadium to play at is to which he responded, the Santiago Bernabeu.

Now you would probably have expected his to say the Emirates. Even if the Emirates was not actually his favorite stadium to play in you would still expect him to say the Emirates.

Diplomacy does not appear to be Ozil’s forte as he made his views on the subject pretty clear. Well at least he was honest I guess.

This was Ozil’s response.

As you would expect quite a few Arsenal fans asked why the Emirates isn’t number one for him.

There were a few supporters who were however, sympathetic to what Ozil said.

Others admired his honesty.

Ozil has played at Arsenal since joining from Real Madrid in 2013.

The 30-year-old has made the traveling squad ahead of the Europa League clash against Sporting Lisbon tonight.

The playmaker has yet to start a Europa League game for the Gunners this term.
