Arsenal Team News

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil missed the last few Premier League games of the season with a back injury but has since recovered ahead of the World Cup in Russia.

The playmaker of Turkish origin shared a tweet of himself with Germany manager Joachim Low but it was his t-shirt that got people talking.

The 29-year-old was wearing a t-shirt that read ‘Best Never Rest’.

This was the photograph that sparked the reaction.

We took a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to the t-shirt on social media.

Quite a few fans found the funny side of Ozil’s t-shirt and thought it was ironic that he would wear ‘Best Never Rest’ considering how many games he missed through illness and his back problem.

He may rest but he’s still the best, isn’t he? some agreed, others didn’t.

Ozil was part of the Germany side that lifted the 2014 World Cup and is expected to be the star man again in Russia.

The playmaker is one of two players of Turkish origin in the squad, Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan being the other. Liverpool midfielder Emre Can was not called up to the squad.

Germany take on Austria next on Saturday 2 June followed by a friendly against Saudi Arabia on June 8 before the start of the World Cup next month.
