LIKE A MODEL: Mesut Ozil - The German Play Maker

Welcome to Vinci's journal column LIKE A MODEL! Here we will bring you the sexiest & hottest men in the football world. So just feast your eyes and give your points for them. The handsome footballer of this week that we choose is Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.

He began his senior career as a member of his hometown club Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga and the ex-German international garnered break-out attention at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, where at age 22, Ozil was instrumental in the side's campaign where they reached the semi-finals, losing to eventual champions Spain. 

He was also nominated for the Golden Ball Award, as well as being ranked first in assists in major European and domestic competitions, with 25. This garnered him a €15 million transfer to Real Madrid.

At Real Madrid, compared to Zidane by former manager Mourinho, Ozil won a Copa del Rey and a Supercopa de EspaƱa. 3 seasons later, Ozil relocated to England to join Premier League side Arsenal in a then club-record deal worth £42.5 million (€50 million), making him the most expensive German football player of all time.

In the past 5 seasons, Ozil always played an important role in the team under the tutelage of Wenger and was the favourite for fans, during his first season, Ozil helped end the club's largely publicised nine-year trophy drought, winning the FA Cup in 2014.
