Jerry Quy, has been the man in the dinosaur outfit since 1993, and the decision to sack him was met by massive outcry from Gunners fans.

Now, it appears that Arsenal outcast Ozil could fund the salary of Quy out of his own pocket, until the end of his Arsenal contract.

“I was so sad that Jerry Quy, our famous and loyal mascot and integral part of our club was being made redundant after 27 years,” Ozil stated on his official Instagram page.

“As such, I’m offering to reimburse Arsenal with the full salary of our big green guy as long as I will be an Arsenal player, so Jerry can continue his job that he loves so much.”

Ozil’s last appearance for Arsenal was on March 7 and he is out of contract next summer.
