'Never Compare De Bruyne And Bruno Fernandes To Him' - Prime Ozil Compilation Shows Just How Good He Was
A compilation of Mesut Ozil tearing it up at Real Madrid has gone viral, with one fan even saying the German should not be compared to Bruno Fernandes and Kevin De Bruyne.
Ozil has found himself completely ostracised by Mikel Arteta at Arsenal, where he has gone nearly a year without playing and has been omitted from Premier League and Europa League squads.
He's spending his time doing Twitter Q&As these days but @Welbeast on Twitter is here to remind us of just how effortlessly good Ozil was with an enjoyable 45 seconds worth of footage.
The Arsenal fan has caused a stir though, as he's claimed nor Fernandes and Kevin De Bruyne, the Premier League's two chief playmakers, will "never hit these levels of good".
In 159 appearances for Real, Ozil scored 27 goals and laid on 80 assists in all competitions, winning La Liga and Copa Del Rey.
When he was sold to Arsenal for a reported £42.5 million on transfer deadline day in 2013, Ronaldo was not happy one bit.
"The sale of Özil is very bad news for me," Ronaldo said at the time.
"He was the player who best knew my moves in front of goal. I'm angry about Özil leaving."

At Arsenal he's won three FA Cups, scored 44 goals and registered 77 assists but there's no denying that his absolute peak was in the Spanish capital.
The World Cup winner's stay at the Emirates looks to be coming an end soon, with Ozil attracting interest from Fenerbahce and MLS outfit D.C United.
Writing on Twitter, Ozil explained that he wants to play in Turkey and the United States before he hangs up his boots - revealing that he grew up supporting Fenerbahce as a youngster.
Despite the situation he is in at the moment, Ozil says he does no regret making the move to North London.
