Ozil trolls Stoke police on Twitter after Arsenal's victory vs. the Potters
Make it Mesut Ozil 1, Stoke police 1.
Ozil couldn't resist hitting back at the Stoke police department following Arsenal's 3-0 win over the Potters on Sunday, after the midfielder was trolled following the Gunners' 1-0 loss at the bet365 Stadium in August.
Back then, the official Stoke police Twitter account made fun of Ozil's display in Stoke's win by calling him a "missing person". That was in response to an Arsenal fan who tweeted the account to "report a robbery" after the visitors had one goal ruled out for offside and were denied a penalty.
So after Arsenal avenged that loss at the Emirates, Ozil was quick to get his own revenge on Twitter.
.@Policingstoke didn't help in the case of robbery last summer so we took matters into our own hands. 🕵🏼♂ Proud to announce we earned three hard fought points today for @TheIwobiEffect and all the other gunners 😉 #Banter pic.twitter.com/wVrFgPKeJh— Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) April 1, 2018
And just like the Stoke police, Ozil added the hashtag "#Banter", making it clear that the previous slight hadn't gone unnoticed.
Now that's how you lay down the law.
