David Seaman has become the latest Arsenal legend to criticise the work rate of midfielder Mesut Ozil.

Former Gunners defender Martin Keown stuck the boot into Ozil after Arsenal’s 1-0 loss at Atletico Madrid which dumped them out of the Europa League.

Ozil was fairly anonymous in the game, and now Seaman has added to the crowd of people to question the German international’s effort.

“I can understand the frustration with Ozil,” he told talkSPORT.

“When he’s on song, he is fantastic, but there have been quite a few times in big games when he just hasn’t turned up and last night was one of them.

“Sometimes he looks like he’s not bothered or he’s getting upset and he’s not happy with other players, but I think that’s just the way he plays.

“It’s so frustrating because he’s got so much talent and he is such a good player, but he needs to turn up more often. I can totally understand why the fans are so frustrated.”
