Arsenal legend not happy with article which has angered thousands of Arsenal fans.
Mesut Ozil was substituted at half-time against Bayern Munich, and irrespective of the full-picture, the knives were being sharpened.
The British tabloids set about laying into the German, despite the fact it was later confirmed he had suffered a hamstring injury which will keep him out for a few weeks.
The most savage treatment Ozil received came courtesy of the Mail, with former News of The World reporter Neil Ashton writing a column which slammed the Gunners' record signing.
The piece acknowledges his injury, but states: 'Behind those eyes something is not right'.
The tone of the piece angered supporters, and former striker Ian Wright himself was unhappy, using his Twitter feed to let Ashton know exactly what he thought about it.
@neilashton_ really Neil your piece on Ozil! Cheap shot.— Ian Wright MBE (@IanWright0) March 12, 2014
Ashton did not reply, in fact he hasn't used his Twitter account since late December to post - so whether he has read Wright's message is unclear.
What can't have escaped him is the reaction to his article on The Mail's website, with more than 700 comments on the piece, mostly from angry Arsenal fans.
Ozil's injury shouldn't mask the fact he was ineffective during the first half in Munich, but it should at least protect him from the sort of stinging editorial which claims he is 'nicking a living.'
