Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has hit back at Mesut Ozil after the Arsenal midfielder said he would rather retire than play for Spurs.
Ozil has been strongly linked with a move away from this month.
The 32-year-old will reportedly sign for Fenerbahce in the coming days.
Although he has been frozen out of the Gunners side since March, Ozil played in a number of fierce North London derbies against Tottenham.
And when responding to a question about what he would choose between retiring or signing for Spurs during a Twitter Q&A he hosted on Monday night, Ozil replied: “Easy question. Retire!”
When asked about the comments in a press conference ahead of his side’s game against Fulham on Tuesday, Mourinho simply asked: “Who told him that Tottenham would be interested in signing him?”
Spurs take on Fulham in a hastily-rearranged fixture after their game against Aston Villa was called off due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Villa camp.
