–Shell-shocked as actor Samuel turns out to be Liverpool supporter
Mesut Ozil was so excited about meeting Hollywood star Samuel L Jackson at the weekend that the midfielder praised the actor on social media for being an Arsenal fan – before doing a U-turn upon realising he is actually a Liverpool supporter.
Jackson was at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday to watch The Gunners take on Manchester City – a game that ended 2-2 – before meeting several of the Arsenal players after the clash.
And after getting a photo with the A-list actor, Ozil quickly took to Twitter to show the snap to his followers alongside the caption: ‘Samuel L Jackson: he doesn’t only know a lot about good movies, but he also supports the best football team! 😉 #AFC’.
Unfortunately for the Germany international, he later realised that Jackson is not an Arsenal fan but instead a supporter of the club’s Premier League rivals – Liverpool – which resulted in Ozil having to re-post the tweet with a different caption.
It seems nothing is quite going right for the little German…
