It’s a toss up between Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez for Arsenal fans’ favourite player, but the German World Cup winner is probably just shading it thanks to his assists ratio this season (as well as Sanchez’s injury).
After two mixed seasons which saw his performances regularly called into question, Ozil has now become the darling of the Gooners thanks to his wonderful, assist laden performances this season.
Ozil now has a chant in his name in which he’s described as superior to Zidane, and Arsenal fans sang it loudly and proudly last weekend.
It was brought to the attention of the man himself, and he giddily tweeted it to his followers, thanking the fans for their love.
Heard about that brilliant song!😬👌😉 I have to say I’m more than proud to have you as our fans. Keep singing on! 😎🎤🎧🎼 https://t.co/dPBD6fzBJ6— Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) 22 Janvier 2016
