Mesut Ozil had a nice message for Arsene Wenger after France beat Germany

Mesut Ozil was powerless to prevent Germany slumping to a 2-0 defeat to Euro 2016 hosts France in the semi-finals on Thursday night.

The Arsenal playmaker cut a dejected figure at the full-time whistle and was consoled by his club teammates Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny.

Ozil was also filmed in conversation with Arsene Wenger and former Gunner Robert Pires after the match - and it’s been revealed that the German offered up a nice message to his club manager.

According to beIN Sports - per 101 Great Goals - who filmed the footage of Ozil in conversation with their Euro 2016 pundits, Wenger said the German playmaker told him: “I hope you go on and win it now”.

Ozil was, of course, referring to France ahead of Sunday’s Euro 2016 final against Portugal.

Why Ozil wants France to beat Portugal

That Ozil would prefer France to win the final over Portugal will come as no big surprise.

As well as Koscielny, Giroud and Wenger, Arsenal also have the likes of Mathieu Debuchy, Yaya Sanogo and Francis Coquelin on the pay roll.

There isn’t a single Portuguese player in the Gunners’ ranks.

Ozil played alongside Cristiano Ronaldo for three seasons at Real Madrid but the 27-year-old has nailed his colours firmly to the mast ahead of this weekend’s showdown at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis.
