Mesut Ozil (who famously offered to pay the salary of Gunnersaurus) has reacted after the mascot made a return to the Emirates. As of Tuesday, Jerry Que who plays the role of the mascot for over 27 years now, tweeted from the sidelines of the home stadium with the caption: “Back at Emirates Stadium today”
The 2014 World Cup winner Mesut Ozil took his time to express his happiness after the news of the reinstatement of the mascot at the Emirates Stadium. Gunnersaurus as of last month was sacked by the club as part of its job-cutting scheme to help with the financial deficiency caused by Covid-19. The decision wasn’t positively received as it prompted a negative clamor from sections of Arsenal’s fanbase and global support with the hashtag #JusticeForGunnersaurus.
