Arsenal supporters made their feelings known to manager Unai Emery by singing Mesut Ozil’s name at the Emirates on Thursday night.

During their Europa League match against Vitoria, the Gunners fell 1-0 and 2-1 behind, a big shock considering the limited strength of their Portuguese opposition.

They ultimately came back to win 3-2, but Ozil was again left out of the squad for the game, much to the annoyance of some fans.

Those in question sent a chant ringing around the Emirates in response, telling their manager: “We’ve got Ozil, Mesut Ozil, I just don’t think you understand.”

It seemed as though tensions were slightly strained on Wednesday afternoon when the duo had an extended conversation on the training ground.

Making the most of the luxurious and spacious London Colney pitches, Emery and Ozil shook hands before strolling away from the rest of the group.

Both men maintained eye contact, before Dani Ceballos, Robert Pires and Matteo Guendouzi came over to talk to the manager.

Ozil later posted a cryptic message on social media, captioning a picture of him smiling with the phrase: “You make me laugh…”

You can read a round-up of the reaction to the chant below.
