Arsenal ace Mesut Ozil has sparked speculation of a bust-up with manager Unai Emery after a cryptic social media post hours after the pair were spotted in deep discussions at training.
Ozil has barely featured this season having fallen out of favour under the Spaniard and the pair were seen holding a lengthy chat at training ahead of Thursday’s game with Vitoria.
The German playmaker posted a tweet on Wednesday evening showing him laughing at training, captioned “you make me laugh…”, with fans quick to presume the post was directed at his manager.
“Dig at Emery,” one fan quickly replied, with another stating “Shots fired, let’s go”.
Another went as far as to tag the boss, saying: “Yo @UnaiEmery_ he’s talking to you”.
The training ground incident between manager and creative midfielder who seem to have fallen out will certainly bring back memories for Manchester United fans.
Just over a year ago Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho fell out with cameras at a similar opening training session catching the two men in a similar looking conversation to the one at Arsenal today.
Unlike Pogba, Ozil has already lost his place in the team before the training ground argument with the 2014 World Cup winner having played just 71 minutes in the league and another 71 minutes in the Carabao Cup.
Much like last year at Old Trafford it’ll be intriguing to see if the player can outlast the manager or will the 31-year-old have to leave the Emirates?
