Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit has accused former Germany international Mesut Ozil of losing all of his desire to be a top player.

Ozil was substituted at half-time in Arsenal’s draw at Brighton on Boxing Day, which raised more question marks about his future at The Emirates.

The German playmaker has struggled badly under Unai Emery and has also failed to deliver on a regular basis.

“Mesut Ozil was taken off at half-time. I’m a big fan of his, but he has been a ghost for two years.

“Where is the Ozil who was one of the best players around, making so many assists and goals? I think he has lost his desire on the pitch, it’s not there any more,” Petit, who won the Double at Arsenal, said according to the UK Mirror.
