Fans react to Arsenal star Mesut Ozil celebrating birthday with Justin Bieber

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil had a 28th birthday to remember. The Germany international of Turkish origin scored in the 3-2 win over Swansea and then went on a night out in London where he was joined by pop sensation Justin Bieber.

After partying until 3am the Ozil and Bieber went out for a meal at Italian restaurant Signor Sassi the following day.

Ozil was also pictured swapping shirts with Bieber outside the Arsenal training grounds giving him the golden Arsenal shirt with his name and number on the back.

We took a look at how Beliebers, Gooners and tweeters responded to whole Ozil-Bieber affair on social media.

Ozil did of course try out a bit of rapping back in Germany but thankfully decided to focus on football instead.

Was Ozil playing a joke on Bieber by giving him last seasons shirt?

Will Ozil start assisting Bieber with songwriting in the near future then?

Turns out Bieber is just as much a fan of Ozil as everybody else who loves football – well most of us.

He does look a bit like Justin!

Or Bieber likes Ozil… or they both like each other.
