Born on 15 October 1988, Mesut Ozil is one of the top professional footballers. Right now, he plays for the Turkish Süper Lig club, Fenerbahçe S.K. His favorite position on the field is an attacking midfielder, but he also can play as a winger.
Ozil has been nicknamed “The Assist King” due to his heroic and excellent past performance. Although he was born and raised in Gelsenkirchen, German, he actually has Turkish bloodlines as his parents are Turkish Immigrants.
Özil started his senior career by playing for hometown club Schalke 04, before signing with Werder Bremen in 2008, aged 19. After giving an amazing and fantastic performance, he earned himself a ticket to move to a giant club by joining Real Madrid in 2010.
His record there was so outstanding. He has helped the club win a La Liga title as a team. Moreover, he has been ranked first in the league for assists in three consecutive seasons for the individual record.
In 2013, he signed a contract worth up to £ 42.5 million (EUR 50 million) for Arsenal, where he was a club-record transfer and also the most expensive German player at that time.
In English Premier League, he helped Arsenal to win three FA Cups and end the club’s nine-year trophy drought. He also records the second-most assists ever in a Premier League season. However, in 2021, Özil joined Fenerbahçe on a free transfer.
His heroic performance does not show in the club only. He also helped his national team, Germany, twice to reach the semi-final. In fact, Özil actually helped Germany to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
