FORMER Arsenal Midfielder, Mesut Ozil, has called for Arsenal Bukayo Saka to be shown respect rather than online racism.

The 32 year old himself has been a victim of racism that led to him stepping away from the Germany team following the 2018 World Cup. 

Ozil in an interview with Sky sports said:

"I felt very much for Bukayo, I know from my own experience how it feels to miss a penalty.

"There will always be people who racially abuse and scapegoat people of different backgrounds and skin colour when they lose."

Recall that Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho - all of whom missed from the spot at the Euro2020 final against Italy were met with racist messages and abuse on social media.
