Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang trolls Mesut Ozil
Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also had a laugh at Mesut Ozil’s expense.
The Gabonese striker has compared Ozil to US soccer star Megan Rapinoe.

Mesut Ozil reveals why he’s gone blonde
Ozil has actually explained why he’s gone blonde.
The midfielder revealed that he lost a bet to Alexandre Lacazette, which provoked the colour change.
Ozil confirmed that he lost a crossbar challenge game, along with Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac.
So will the aforementioned pair also go blonde imminently?
