[Photo] Mesut Ozil Explains Goal Celebration After ‘Perfect’ Win Over Villa

By on February 1, 2015

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has taken to Instagram to explain his goal celebration after his MOTM display during our 5-0 win over Aston Villa this afternoon.

Ozil made his first Premier League start since returning from a four month injury absence today and was right back in the swing of things as he set-up Olivier Giroud for the opening goal before making it 2-0 shortly after half-time with a cool left-footed finish.

Fans were discussing the German international’s unusual celebration on social media after he sucked his thumb and made an ‘M’ with his left hand to the camera’s after his goal.

Ozil took to his Instagram page immediately after the match to explain that the celebration was a dedication to his niece, Mira, who he calls ‘perfect’.

A nice touch from the classy attacker and Arsenal fans will be hoping to see another goal celebration against Tottenham at White Hart Lane next weekend.

Here’s Ozil’s Instagram post:

What a perfect day! Perfect like you, little Mira! This goal is for you! #family #niece #love #AFCvAVFC
