The Germany midfielder’s defensive contribution was questioned recently by ex-Gunners defender, Martin Keown, while former striker, Ian Wright blasted the club for how they handled Alexis Sanchez’s proposed to Manchester City that broke down.
Ozil wrote on a series of images Instagram: “During the last couple of days, my [Germany] team-mates have been asking me about how everything is at Arsenal at the moment.
“They claimed to have read about the current crisis throughout the media, as pundits and former players are commenting on a daily basis. They say that this could be the worst team in years, even decades.
“Four years ago I was transferred in a last-minute deal from Real Madrid to Arsenal – Arsene Wenger convinced me. He told me about the great history of this club, about its living legends such [as] Bergkamp, Vieira and Pires, who owe a large part of their success to the manager.
“Arsene told me how he would help me develop as a player and this is something every player wants to hear, as it is great encouragement.
“Personally, I’ve had to accept a lot of criticism during my time in London. ‘Too expensive, too greedy, bad body language, and lacking fight’ – this is what people have said about me…
“Although criticism is something that all football players have to deal with, I nevertheless expected legends to behave like legends – my advice to these former Gunners: Stop talking and start supporting!
“Even though I personally do not know how my career will continue after this year, I look forward to my fifth season with Arsenal… I am glad to be able to your shirt, Gooners.
“I’ve had so many great moments in the last four years and I appreciate what this club means to the people of London, the UK and all over the world.”
