The former Gunners striker has hit back at the German international's criticism of ex-players and wonders why he hasn't signed a new deal
Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has launched a blistering attack on Mesut Ozil, branding the German’s opinions “laughable”.

The playmaker has criticised “ex-players” in the media for their analysis of the current Gunners team, who have lost two of their opening three Premier League matches of the season.

Ozil told them to "stop talking and start supporting" following comments made by several former players as to the state of the current side following their 4-0 loss to Liverpool prior to the international break.

Wright has taken exception to this standpoint and questioned why the 28-year-old has not signed a new deal with the club if he feels so strongly about the situation.

“It’s laughable,” Wright told BBC Radio 5.
“We’re not talking about a team charging up the league, we’re talking about a team that’s under-performing.
“It’s not just the team, it’s the people in the boardroom, the manager, everybody.”

Wright – the club’s second highest goalscorer of all-time behind only Thierry Henry – accused the Germany international of hiding behind Alexis Sanchez, whose future continues to dominate headlines.

He added: “Sign a contract if you feel that strongly about people criticising the team because you’re someone who’s integral to Arsenal's success.

"You’re going to continue to hide behind Sanchez. Why haven’t you signed yet? That’s what I would say to you. If you feel that strongly, why haven’t you signed yet?"

Philippe Coutinho shrugged off his transfer disappointment with a goal as Brazil beat Ecuador to guarantee top spot in South America's 2018 World Cup qualifying race on Thursday while Chile and Argentina stumbled once more.

David Villa's return to the Spanish national team has been cut short by an adductor injury, with the forward leaving the squad before they face Liechtenstein in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

France's teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe joined Paris St Germain from AS Monaco and England's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain spurned Chelsea's overtures to sign for Liverpool from Arsenal in two of the most eye-catching deals on transfer deadline day.

The 27-year-old was a key part of the Foxes side that won the Premier League in 2015-16, but asked to leave the club amid interest from the Blues.

Chelsea have also signed defender Davide Zappacosta from Torino on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
