Reacting to the loss, Gudjohnsen said Ozil should be ” embarrassed” following his showing in the night at Baku, Azerbaijan.

He slammed the German star for expecting a “standing ovation” after he was replaced in the second half of the match.

“The one thing is you tell me if you’re the manager of Arsenal… you’re 4-1 down in the final you take Ozil off and he’s walking at the slowest pace like he’s waiting for a standing ovation,” Gudjohnsen told BT Sport.

“I’m sorry if that’s me I’d feel embarrassed, head down and I sprint off the pitch.

“He’s a wonderful player, tremendous quality but as a manager, I could never watch that in my team.”
