Has the Mesut Ozil-Arsenal saga finally come to an end?
Media reports suggest that the club and player have come to an agreement to terminate his contract after seven and a half years in N5, with the German star heading off to Fenerbahce of Turkey (thanks to Sue of this parish for spotting the news).
It’s obviously a good thing for both parties that this unhappy narrative now has a final chapter. It cannot have been good for squad dynamics to have such a talented player and big character (who was also on an enormous salary) hanging around while being denied the chance to kick a ball in anger.
Rather than re-hash all the arguments about him, and in the spirit of moving forward positively, let’s celebrate the good times that we had with Ozil by remembering our favourite moments.
I’m going to go for the period when he and Alexis Sanchez seemed to have a telepathic relationship, creating goals and chances for each other (and working together to create goals for team mates).
Over to you.
