Paul Merson SLAMS Arsenal for sacking Gunnnersaurus and claims Mesut Ozil has embarrassed the club

‘Unbelievably shocking at the highest level’: Paul Merson SLAMS Arsenal for sacking club mascot Gunnnersaurus and claims Mesut Ozil has made the club look ‘absolutely stupid’ by offering to cover Jerry Quy’s wages

  • Arsenal club mascot Gunnersaurus was sacked by the Gunnners this week 
  • German star Mesut Ozil offered to pay the wages of the big green dinosaur
  • Jerry Quy had been the man inside the Gunnersaurus suit since 1993
  • Ex-Arsenal man Paul Merson believes Ozil has made the club look stupid 

Paul Merson has slammed Arsenal for sacking Gunnersaurus this week, amid Mesut Ozil’s offer to cover the club mascot’s wages until fans return to stadiums.

The Gunners made Jerry Quy, the man inside the large green dinosaur suit, redundant until fans can return to the side, as the UK Government keeps Premier League supporters away from stadiums due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Arsenal exile Ozil announced he would support Quy in this difficult scenario and former Gunners midfielder Merson believes the north London club have been embarrassed by their German midfielder.
