Mesut Ozil has once again shown why he’s a class above the rest by writing a heart-felt, touching caption on Instagram.
The playmaker, who featured in Germany’s 2-0 Euro semi-final defeat to France, was understandably disappointed with the result but insists that the French deserve it after everything they’ve been through after the terror attacks last year.
The disappointment of the bitter defeat is still the same as yesterday. It just was not meant to be and luck was not really on our side. Nevertheless, congratulations to France being a great host. The team and especially the people well deserved it after all the discussions and safety precautions throughout the country since November 2015. Adieu & merci France! #GERFRA #Euro2016 @dfb_team @equipedefrance
The 27-year-old isn’t just a class act on the pitch, he’s a gentleman off it and the fact that he took the time out to write that, despite being heartbroken over being knocked out of the tournament, shows his character.
It’s a pleasure to have him at our club.
