(Video) Mesut Ozil smiles as he leaves Emirates despite Arsenal losing 10-2 on aggregate to Bayern Munich
Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League at the Last 16 stage for a seventh consecutive season after a humiliating 10-2 aggregate defeat against Bayern Munich.
Gunners star Mesut Ozil did not start as Arsene Wenger did not feel he was physically ready yet after missing the Liverpool clash due to illness.
The North London side capitulated soon after Ozil’s introduction and conceded three times in quick succession.
Ozil sparked a social media storm after the game when he appeared to have been caught smiling for the cameras despite the embarrassing loss.
The Germany international of Turkish origin left in his car after the game and soon encountered a group of Arsenal fans.
A short clip soon emerged showing the incident. Ozil does smile for the fans but in the moments before after he does not look particularly happy.

Perhaps Ozil was just putting on a brave face for the fans, it is difficult to comprehend why he would be in a good mood after being thrashed in the Champions League.
