Bayern legend Kahn attacks 'passive' Ozil

Germany legend, Oliver Kahn has criticised Mesut Ozil over his passive performance during Wednesday's UCL showdown and feels Arsenal players are no longer listening to Arsene Wenger after Bayern Munich's huge victory.

Kahn claims he has never seen a team play as badly as the Gunners during their 5-1 capitulation to Bayern at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

Germany international Ozil was singled out by Kahn as a particularly poor Arsenal performer and he suggested under-pressure Wenger – who is out of contract at the end of the season – is no longer being listened to.

"I have never seen a team play so bad. Bayern played a team so catastrophically bad without the ball.

"The players were so passive, especially Ozil. It is as if they don't take the coach seriously anymore." Kahn told ZDF

Unless Arsenal can fashion the most unlikely of second-leg comebacks, they are now set to crash out of the Champions League at the last-16 for a seventh straight season.
