Arsenal may be finishing the season trophyless but at least Mesut Ozil won’t be finishing without one.
The World Cup winner picked up the Germany player of the year award for the fourth time ahead of the international clash against England in Berlin yesterday.

Ozil won nearly half of the vote 49.5 percent beating Thomas Muller who came second with 16 percent to pick up the title for the fourth time in five years.
The playmaker already knew he had won the award but had to wait until the international friendly to pick up the award.
There was not much else to celebrate for Ozil on the night as Germany ended up losing 3-2 with a last-gasp winner from Eric Dier.
Ozil did however, add to his assist tally setting up the opening goal – well providing the pass before Kroos did all the hard work and scored from outside the area.
The Arsenal man created the joint highest number of chances (2) as has come to be expected this season.
