The German hit out at comments made by former Arsenal players in a Facebook post to mark his four year anniversary at the Emirates Stadium.
Emmanuel Petit and Paul Merson are just two of the former stars who have questioned the 28-year-old's performances over the past few seasons.

And Wright, who has been an avid supporter of Ozil in the past, has also waded into the row after feeling that the jibe was also aimed in his direction.
"A player that is not actually performing on the pitch is coming out, calling people out and he's not signing a contract. It's laughable," said Wright on BBC Radio 5 Live.
"We're not talking about former players criticising a team that's charging up the league and winning leagues.

“Yes, we've won the FA Cup and when they've done that, they've rightfully been praised for that. But we're talking about a team that's under-performing. Not just the team, people in the boardroom, the manager with his decisions, everybody.”
Ozil, who was signed for £42m from Real Madrid, has yet to put pen to paper on a new deal at the club, despite his contact expiring at the end of the season and Wright called on him to step up and show his commitment instead of taking aim at former stars.
“Sign a contract, if you feel that strongly about people criticising the team because you're somebody who is integral to Arsenal's success,” said Wright.
“You're not signing a deal and you're probably going to continue to hide behind the fact that [Alexis] Sanchez is the one that everybody's going to say, ‘Is he going to go?’.
“Why haven't you signed yet? That's what I would say to you. If you feel that strongly, why haven't you signed yet?"
