Bayern Munich fans unfurled ‘Gay Gunners’ banner with crude Özil caricature v Arsenal

Well this wasn’t very pleasant.

A group of Bayern fans showed their homophobic side during the Arsenal game tonight, unfurling a banner reading ‘Gay Gunners’, depicting a crude caricature of Mesut Özil…ahem, bent over in fron of a cannon.

The inference in the banner was clear, and may be the source of a UEFA investigation.

The nasty homophobia and wanton implication aside, Mesut Ozil seemed a curious target of Bayern fans’ hatred, being German and all.

But then they do say the Bavarians are a different breed…
