Mesut Özil admits he likes to pamper himself before Arsenal games
Arsenal playmaker Mesut Özil has admitted that he carries a personal grooming kit to every game.
The German international brings Moisturiser, gel and shampoo to games and pays extra attention to his appearance before taking the field.
Özil spoke about his pre-game ritual during a photoshoot with GQ Style.
“I bring my own grooming kit to the game. Moisturiser, gel and shampoo,” Özil told GQ Style.
“I like to take care of myself. Football players like to take care of themselves and pay attention to the way they dress.”
Özil is expected to start in Arsenal’s clash against their London rivals West Ham United this weekend.
The Gunners have recorded seven victories in their last eight games and have won four games in a row. Arsenal sit in third place with 54 points in 28 games.
