Mesut Ozil joined Real Madrid in 2010 and went on to assist 81 goals in 159 appearances and score 27.

When the German playmaker joined us in 2013, we had no doubt whatsoever of his ability and so far, he hasn’t disappointed us. He’s gone on to assist 23 and score 12 in 72 appearances.

Although he’s not quite hitting the type of numbers he was at Madrid, the calibre of forward, namely Cristiano Ronaldo, he had in front of him was far more likely to finish what he delivered to him. With all due respect to Olivier Giroud, Ronaldo he is not.

Here are Ozil’s highlights from his time at Real Madrid and Arsenal.
