Mesut Ozil jokes about assist addiction on Instagram

Published Add your comment

It didn’t take long for Real Madrid superstar Mesut Ozil to hit the ground running once he arrived in north London to play for Arsenal.

Despite some criticism since his big-money move to the Gunners, Ozil has shown his talents in abundance.

One statistic that stands out the most is the German's ability to assist those around him. A role in the team he often takes to the extreme, passing to a team-mate even when scoring seems easier.

This irony is seemingly not lost on the German No.10 either. The midfield maestro took to Instagram after his side's 4-0 FA Cup win to celebrate, posting a picture of himself helping photographers take pictures of the celebrations with the amusing caption: “Always happy assisting.”

The post which has been liked by over 100,000 people also included the hashtags #YouHaveBeenAssisted and #YaGunnersYa.

The latter hashtag a mockery of his own, quite German celebration after Arsenal's FA Cup victory against Hull City last year.

Ozil captioned the entire photograph: “Always happy assisting. This time our two @arsenal photographs @Stuart_PhotoAFC and @PRICEYDG #YaGunnersYa #youhavebeenassisted”.

Despite Ozil's renowned ability to set-up his Arsenal colleagues his form has dipped of late. Having been left behind in the assisting charts by Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas and his own team mate Santi Cazorla.

Arsenal fans will be hoping Ozil will be spurred on for next season after winning his second successive FA Cup trophy.
