Everton 1-0 Arsenal: ‘Mesut Ozil should NEVER be captain’ – Vinnie Jones slams Gunners star after Premier League defeat

Vinnie Jones has blasted the decision to make Mesut Ozil captain for Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday.

The German midfielder was replaced by Alex Iwobi after struggling to influence the game, as Phil Jagielka’s strike delivered a huge blow to the Gunners’ top-four bid.

Ozil trudged off in frustration and appeared to throw a strop on the bench, launching his jacket in the direction of Toffees manager Marco Silva.

And according to former Wimbledon hard-man Jones, Ozil lacks the character to lead a team in such a hostile environment.

Ozil struggled against Everton

“Ozil, captain? He’s never a captain, for me,” the footballer-turned-Hollywood star told talkSPORT.

“I wouldn’t want him leading me out at Everton away.

“Goodison Park is a hell of a place to go. It’s a fantastic stadium and the crowd really get behind them.
