Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has taken to Instagram to wish Franz Beckenbauer a happy birthday. The Germany legend nicknamed the ‘Kaiser’ turned 70 today.
Ozil marked the occasion by uploading a picture of himself wearing a ‘Beckenbauer’ t-shirt along with the following caption, “He has always known how to #BeTheDifference as a player and as a coach Wearing the @adidasoriginals #Kaiser70 on his special day! Happy birthday, Franz!”
Mesut Özil is expected to be fit for Arsenal’s clash with Stoke City in the Premier League this weekend.
The 26-year-old missed the Gunners game against Newcastle before the international break. The North London based side secured a 1-0 victory in Özil’s absence.
Arsenal fans feared the worst when the club confirmed that Özil had sustained a knee injury as the former Real Madrid man missed three months of football last season with a knee injury.
However, Özil recovered briskly and played 90 minutes in both of Germany’s Euro 2016 qualification games against Poland and Scotland.
