Arsenal's Mesut Ozil names his 'dream XI' featuring a mix of legends and current stars

Ozil named his best XI

Mesut Ozil took to Twitter to take part in a Q&A on Wednesday afternoon. 

The Arsenal star answered a range of questions, including who his toughest ever opponent was, his best career memories and his favourite assist.

He even took the time to troll rivals Tottenham Hotspur too. 

When asked 'If you had a choice would you rather play for Tottenham or retire?' he answered:

"If I don’t want to win a cup, I should go there #YaGunnersYa."

Brutal, but it was a response that Arsenal fans loved. 

On top of trolling Spurs, Ozil also named his 'dream XI' and it's pretty amazing. 

Ozil named his 'dream XI' of former teammates

Check it out below: 

GK: Iker Casillas

DEF: Philipp Lahm - Sergio Ramos - Jerome Boateng - Marcelo

CM: Xabi Alonso - Santi Cazorla

ATT MID: Angel Di Maria - Kaka - Cristiano Ronaldo

STK: Karim Benzema

Now, that's certainly not a bad team, is it? 

Ozil named Ronaldo in his dream team

Although he was asked to name his 'dream XI' it seems Ozil has picked 11 players that he's played with before. 

That's why it's very Real Madrid heavy and that's why the likes of Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski don't feature. 

But, it is interesting to note that he picked Benzema over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang... that must have been a tough call. 

Ozil didn't pick PEA in his dream XI

As well as naming his best teammates, Ozil named Barcelona legend Carles Puyol as the toughest defender he's ever faced and claimed that Mathieu Flamini was the best he played with at Arsenal.

Interesting choice that one, Mesut. 

While he's been entertaining fans on Twitter, Arsenal supporters will be hoping Ozil can entertain them on the pitch next season. 

Ozil needs to work his way back into Arteta's plans

The midfielder had a tough 2019/20 campaign and at this moment in time, it's not clear if he'll be part of Mikel Arteta's long-term plans. 

Let's be honest though, he's far too good to be spending another season sat on the bench.
