Mesut Ozil quotes Arsenal club legend Tony Adams on Facebook and racks up the 'likes'
German star tries to re-connect with supporters with famous quote
Wednesday 07 May 2014
If there are any Arsenal fans still having lingering doubts about their £42m star Mesut Ozil, then the German is trying his hardest to adhere to the Gunners’ faithful and in the best possible way.
The 25-year-old took to Facebook to quote club legend Tony Adams’ famous words; "play for the name on the front of the shirt and they’ll remember the name on the back", accompanying a picture of Ozil celebrating for the Gunners.
The post, which received over 235,000 likes in 17 hours, is a shrewd way to win over any stubborn Arsenal supporters still unsure of last summer’s big money signing.
Ozil has scored five times in the league this season with ten assists but missed several weeks due to a hamstring injury and struggled for form after an initial good start.
Arsenal will want much more from their marquee signing next season but Ozil’s social media prowess would seem to be doing the trick off the pitch at least.
