Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil looks to silence rumours with social media photo of girlfriend.
On the advent of his transfer from Real Madrid to Arsenal, Mesut Ozil was surprised to learn of a plethora of rumours suggesting he was something of a womaniser – believed to have emanated from the Spanish capital.
Madrid based publication ABC, believed to have an inside track to los Meringues president Florentino Perez, claimed that the club supremo would tell shareholders that Ozil “wasn’t a good professional and was obsessed with women and nightlife.”
There is speculation that Perez has been attempting to justify the surprise sale of Ozil to Arsenal with vicious rumours – rumours that Ozil’s entourage have vehemently disputed.
Photos such as this one, posted by Ozil to his Instagram account, are the best way to disprove such accusations.
Ozil posed with the legs of his girlfriend Mandy Capristo on his lap, and with the couple having been together for over a year and happy with life in London, perhaps those rumours will finally be put to bed.
The Germany international has scored once and provided five assists in his five appearances for the Gunners so far.
