Ian Wright has managed to frustrate Arsenal fans again after having a dig at Mesut Ozil on social media.

Wright’s dig at Ozil’s consistency and lack of interest from other clubs followed the news that the 29-year-old had penned a new deal with Arsenal.

In the past, Wright has stuck up for Ozil when other pundits and former players wouldn’t.

Back in November 2017, the ex-Arsenal striker described the German as a “beautiful player to watch”.

But, since then, Wright hasn’t held back with often unwarranted criticism of the playmaker.

In September, the pundit was livid when Ozil hit out at former Gunners via his four-year Arsenal-versary Instagram post for their comments in the press about the team.

“Sign a contract, if you feel that strongly about people criticising the team because you’re somebody who is integral to Arsenal’s success,” Wright said on BBC Radio 5 live, reported by the Evening Standard at the time.

“You’re not signing a deal and you’re probably going to continue to hide behind the fact that (Alexis) Sanchez is the one that everybody’s going to say, ‘Is he going to go?’.

“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?

“A player that is not actually performing on the pitch is coming out, calling people out and he’s not signing a contract. It’s laughable.”

This was before Wright said Ozil should sign for Manchester United in January because he would do well there.

“Yes I do (think Ozil would do well at United),” Wright said, reported the Express.

“I think he is that kind of player.

“He is not going to drag a team along but if you’re playing well he is going to sprinkle like stardust.

“When you watch him he is awesome.

“With the right team and right people in front of him he will shine.”

Now, after urging Ozil to prove himself by signing on the dotted line at Arsenal, Wright has aimed another dig at the playmaker on Instagram, claiming: “…he’s played a couple of decent games and now he’s signed a contract? Didn’t see many clubs beating down the door and he was free. Let’s hope he’s as consistent now he’s signed.”

Arsenal fans, unsurprisingly, have become a little tired of ex-players’ skewed views when it comes to Ozil.

The German can’t win. He was told to sign a new deal, then sneered at for doing precisely that.
