Arsenal’s record signing Mesut Ozil has struggled to endear himself to fans in recent months – slack performances, an apparent lack of effort, and half-time shirt swapping have done the German no favours. But his latest misdemeanour may see him in the biggest trouble, as he was pictured out partying despite reportedly being too ill to play for the Gunners, reports CaughtOffside.

The 26-year-old was snapped on a night out in Berlin, just hours after he missed Arsenal’s narrow victory over Newcastle.
Ozil had returned to his home country early ahead of international duty later this week, and it is expected that the midfielder will feature against Australia and Georgia despite his apparent illness.
It is now likely that upon his return to the Emirates next week, he will be reminded of his duties at the club like goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and midfielder Jack Wilshere have been, for off-field issues earlier in the season.
