ARSENAL icon Mesut Ozil trolled Atletico Madrid with a cheeky comment about football’s new blue card.
It was revealed on Thursday that blue cards could be brought into the game.
Players on the receiving end will have to spend 10 minutes of the match on the sidelines.
If implemented, they will be given for cynical fouls or dissent towards an official.
He tweeted: “So Atletico Madrid will only play with 6 players then?”
The 35-year-old’s comment left fans in stitches, with one person responding: “Thought it was a parody lol, Ozil doesn’t miss 😭.”
Another wrote: “Common Ozil W.”
While a third commented: “Ozil skills off pitch 😂.”
Ozil came up against Atletico on eight occasions during his time at Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013.
He left the Santiago Bernabeu to join Arsenal in 2013 and went on to make 254 appearances for the Gunners.
