Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker shows off BFG t-shirt in this brilliant photo.
Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker is affectionately known as the BFG amongst fans of the Gunners – both in homage to his Big Friendly Giant persona akin to the subject of the Roald Dahl book, and as a Big F***ing German.
The centre back has embraced the nickname, and here he is posing in a t-shirt featuring both the moniker and his own face.
Per is so f****** awesome. pic.twitter.com/bU9bpr73wx
