Spurs fans joke that Arsenal should have signed Roberto Soldado instead of Mesut Ozil
How different would Arsenal’s first leg with Bayern Munich have been had Mesut Ozil converted his penalty in the 9th minute?
We will never know, but there is no doubting that Ozil never recovered with Arsene Wenger admitting afterwards that the German playmaker was shaking his head for the next 10 minutes.
Ozil struggled and has been labelled a misfit by some sections of the media.
Of course, Tottenham supporters have also chimed in with their thoughts on Arsenal’s defeat to Bayern, laughing and joking about numerous aspects of the defeat.
And, whilst Roberto Soldado has been a major flop at White Hart Lane, there is no doubting that the Spaniard can take a penalty!
Hence plenty of Tweets from Spurs fans joking that Arsenal signed the wrong misfit last summer!
Perhaps Arsenal fans will get to laugh at their north London rivals as Spurs face Dnipro in the Europa League this evening.

Ozil that is really really pathetic and the second time I've seen you do it, better send Bobby Soldado down for some coaching!

Ozil needs to take tips off of Soldado

Atleast soldado can score penalties. Actually ozil was trying to assist from the spot, not his fault.

Everyone giving Soldado stick because "he only scores penalties". Give me a break! Alaba & Ozil both miss, goal is a goal. He will come good
