Arsenal players angered by Ozil's absence

Germany international Mesut Ozil has reportedly angered his Arsenal teammates with his 'prima donna attitude' and his recurrent injury concerns.

According to The Sun, a section of the Gunners' squad are not pleased with the World Cup winner, who has declared himself unfit during different stages of the campaign.

Ozil has not participated in any of the club's last five league appearances and he has recently complained about a back problem which is expected to sideline him for the rest of the season.

The German attacker is currently the club's top earner after he signed a fresh £350,000 per week deal in January. He has since not been in the best of form but he remains highly-regarded by the club's hierarchy.

Despite his injury setback, Ozil is expected to regain his fitness ahead of the World Cup which begins in just over a month's time. Germany face Mexico in their opening game on June 17.
