Former Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil was caught partying with Barcelona players in Berlin after the Azulgranas conquered the Champions League title last Saturday, as reported by German newspaper Bild.
Barca players headed to a night club to celebrate their victory after beating Juventus 3-1 at Berlin Olympic Stadium. Ozil went to that same club that night and was seen partying with Neymar and Gerard Pique among other Azulgrana players.
Bild reported Ozil had a cost-free night, as his drinks were paid by Brazilian striker Neymar.
These news have angered many Los Blancos fans, who have seen this as a treason. Ozil spent three seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu before signing for Arsenal in a 45-million-euro deal.
He was one of the fans’ favourites and some fans criticised his sale. However, everyone celebrated such a great deal after seeing the Germany international embarrass himself at Arsenal. In two seasons in north London, he has failed to become a guaranteed starter, putting in some poor performances, although he has picked up two FA Cup winners’ medals.
There have always been rumours of Ozil being a Barcelona fan in his childhood, and this could finally confirm it. If Arsenal were to play at the Santiago Bernabeu next season, Ozil might not have the warm welcome he would expect.
