Things haven't gone quite according to plan for Mesut Ozil this year, but the German proved he's still as sharp as ever when he hit back at Piers Morgan on Twitter who suggested the midfielder 'should leave Arsenal'.

Ozil has fallen out of favour under Mikel Arteta, and has been left out of the Gunners' Premier League and Europa League squads this season. But despite being frozen out, the former Real Madrid man continues to show his support for Arsenal on social media.

The 32-year-old is always active on Twitter during Arsenal's games, and ahead of Sunday's clash with Leeds United, Ozil wrote: “Let’s goooooo…#COYG #YaGunnersYa”.

The tweet prompted a response from Gunners fan Morgan, who said: “I wish you would, Mesut. For your sake and Arsenal’s.”

Ozil chose to respond to Morgan, suggesting that the former Daily Mirror editor had been hacked. He said, "Piers, was that really you, or was your phone hacked?"

Piers wasted no time in firing back a response to Ozil.

He wrote: “I must say @MesutOzil1088, I admire your nerve in trolling Arsenal fans who pay your wages given you’re getting £350k-a-week of OUR money to sit on your a*se doing f*ck all. Try training as hard as you work on being a clever dick. Then the manager might pick you.”

But it was clear who won this argument. Morgan was accused of phone hacking during his time at the Mirror, and Ozil didn't waste the opportunity to aim a dig at the 55-year-old.

Yep, he really went there.

Needless to say, fans absolutely loved how Ozil bodied Morgan.
