Bierhoff blasts German fans jeering Arsenal midfielder Ozil

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil was booed by his own German fans last night.

Ozil was substituted in the 89th minute to a chorus of boos and the jeering continued at the full time whistle.

Mario Gotze's 16th-minute winner - set up by Ozil - was the difference between the sides but the German fans were clearly unimpressed ahead of the World Cup in the summer.

Germany general manager Oliver Bierhoff reacted to the boos aimed in Ozil's direction saying: "I don't understand the whistling. I find it a shame that a player such as Mesut is picked out [for that kind of reaction]. I would hope for different support for a game like that."
