Per Mertesacker was on ZDF on Saturday night as he was interviewed on Germany’s version of Match of the Day.

The Arsenal defender wasn’t in the squad to face Chelsea earlier that day but, having overcome illness, is likely to be in the squad that travels to White Hart Lane for Wednesday night’s north London derby in the League Cup.

The defender was introduced as the “Big F***ing German” before being interviewed and taking part in something akin to a penalty shootout. Check out all the footage, and how he did, below.
