The war of words started after Ozil posted a picture of himself in front of thousands of fans at the Emirates.
He added the caption: “The feeling of having fans behind you… #grateful #bestfans #hardtimes.”
The Good Morning Britain presenter, who is an Arsenal fan, was quick to respond to the 32-year-old.
He wrote: “Real Arsenal fans aren’t behind you.
“You’re our Paul Pogba – massively overpaid, massively under-performing & shockingly overinflated sense of your own importance. #truth.”
And Ozil, who earns £350,000-per-week at the Emirates, hit back at the 55-year-old.
He wrote: “Piers, buddy, are you still bitter from the other day? It seems like you’re not a big fan of World Champions.
“I wish you would see as good as you hear things.”
