[Photo] Mesut Ozil Posts Picture Celebrating His Birthday – No Sign Of Injury
Good news Arsenal fans, Mesut Ozil posted a picture of him back in London celebrating his birthday with his partner with no obvious signs of a serious injury.
Like many Arsenal fans, I feared the worst when I heard the news that Mesut Ozil was withdrawn shortly before the end of Germany’s 5-3 win over Sweden last night but judging by the picture below, he’s doing just fine.
Ozil bagged a goal and an assist during the game on Tuesday but headed straight down the tunnel in the 87th minute after being forced off with an apparent knee injury.
Contrasting reports emerged on Wednesday with some newspapers suggesting he was going to be ruled out with a hamstring strain while others claimed it was nothing more than minor bruising and he should feature against Norwich on Saturday.
We’re still waiting for official news regarding his fitness, but Ozil gave us a hint that he’s OK after posting a picture of him standing in front of his birthday presents – which were given to him by his partner Mandy Capristo – with no obvious signs of any serious injury.
The play-maker turned 25 on Wednesday and arrived back in London during the afternoon to celebrate with his family, and with any luck he’ll be back on the pitch on Saturday celebrating another three points with a win over Norwich.
