MESUT OZIL has launched a scathing attack on Piers Morgan on Twitter.
The Arsenal star hit back at the presenter’s claims that he was overpaid and not backed by fans.
The war of words started after Ozil posted a picture of himself in front of thousands of fans at the Emirates.
He added the caption: “The feeling of having fans behind you… #grateful #bestfans #hardtimes.”
The Good Morning Britain presenter, who is an Arsenal fan, was quick to respond to the midfielder.
He wrote: “Real Arsenal fans aren’t behind you.
“You’re our Paul Pogba – massively overpaid, massively under-performing & shockingly overinflated sense of your own importance. #truth.”
And Ozil, who earns £350,000-per-week at the Emirates, hit back at the 55-year-old.
He wrote: “Piers, buddy, are you still bitter from the other day? It seems like you’re not a big fan of World Champions.
“I wish you would see as good as you hear things.”
Ozil has been frozen out of Arsenal’s squad by manager Mikel Arteta.
The midfielder has not featured for the North London club since March 7.
