Watch: Arsenal Fans Give Huge Show Of Support To Mesut Ozil In Stadium Despite Being On The Bench

Arsenal took on Atletico Madrid in the International Champions Cup on Thursday, in Singapore, as part of their pre-season campaign.

Mesut Ozil returned to pre-season training early following the controversy with the Germany national team.

Ozil quit international football, citing racism and discrimination as being reasons behind his decision.

The 29-year-old did not play against Atleti, he was not named on the team sheet but he did sit on the bench with his teammates.

When the camera focused on Ozil in the stadium he received a huge show of support from the fans, perhaps the biggest cheer of the night.
