Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has done it again. He’s said the three words that did wonders for his popularity at the Emirates Stadium this time last year: “Ja Gunners, Ja!”
The Germany international was filmed alongside his teammates doing the traditional lap of honour following his side’s 4-1 victory over West Brom when he decided to treat fans with his funny catchphrase.
He first did it following last season’s triumphant FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium - and the Gunners faithful are now hoping he will say it for a third time following this Saturday’s FA Cup final against Aston Villa.
Ozil has enjoyed a decent second season at the Emirates Stadium following his unconvincing debut campaign, despite missing several months through injury.
The 26-year-old, who Arsenal signed for £42.4 million from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013, appears happy and content with the north London outfit and is beginning to show why Arsene Wenger paid a club-record fee for his services less than two years ago.
Once widely regarded as one of the best No. 10s in world football, Ozil’s reputation has been tarnished since his move to the Emirates.
But things are beginning to pick up for the World Cup winner, who will be expected to become even more influential for this Arsenal side next season.
