Arsenal star Ozil Tweets support to Bayern Munich following Madrid loss

Boateng, Gotze & Ozil Germany

Mesut Ozil has many international team-mates at Bayern Munich - and he sent them a message yesterday.

Arsenal failed and then Manchester United followed against German powerhouse Bayern Munich this season - but Real Madrid showed us all how it is done with a magnificent performance against the Bavarians at the Allianz Arena last night.

Real won 5-0 on aggregate against the reigning champions - thumping them 4-0 on the night thanks to a brace apiece from Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos - in what was a tactical master class from Carlo Ancelotti.

His side evoked the spirit of his great AC Milan side with swift counter attacks and a drilled, brutal, defence undoing the more glamorous rivals.

One keen observer was Arsenal’s record signing Mesut Ozil. The German international had interests in both sides.

As a former Real Madrid player, albeit one who left in eventually rather acrimonious fashion last September, he was backing his old team-mates - posting this message on Twitter before the game had even finished:

But he also had a message for the Bayern players.

Writing in his native tongue he had warm words for his international colleagues - such as Mario Gotze, Toni Kroos, Philipp Lahm and Thomas Muller - with whom he will contest the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

Here is the translation for the below Tweet.

Head high mean friends of Bavaria: in the summer we attack together. #fcbrma

Maybe this time next year Ozil will be too busy to be on Twitter as Arsenal fans will be hoping he is playing in a Champions League semi-final himself.
