Mesut Ozil birthday: Santi Cazorla and Shkodran Mustafi wish Mesut Ozil on the midfielder’s 30th birthday.
Arsenal midfield star Mesut Ozil celebrates his 30th birthday today. Mesut Ozil has been one of the key performers for Arsenal, and until his retirement from international football, Germany.
Regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders, Mesut Ozil holds the record of most assists in a single season in the Bundesliga, La Liga and Premier League. He also holds this record in the World Cup and the Euro.
Ozil started his career at German club Schalke 04 in 2006, before making a move to Werder Bremen in 2008. After a terrific World Cup with Germany, he came in the radar of major European clubs like Real Madrid, Arsenal and Barcelona. The Los Blancos, however, successfully signed the midfielder, and Ozil spent three seasons at Santiago Bernabeu.
Since 2013, Ozil has been a central figure at Arsenal. This is his sixth season at Arsenal, which is the longest he has ever been at a club. He led Arsenal to three FA Cup victories, and a Community Shield title. Under their new manager Unai Emery, Arsenal has made a bright start to the campaign, as they aim for more trophies this season.
