Is Arsenal legend Mesut Ozil’s new best friend?

Right before the game Arsenal’s midfielder Mesut Ozil received some kind words from a Arsenal legend. Will he be Ozil's new lucky charm?

Ozil is noticeably amused as he received a hand shake from Gunner legend Thierry Henry right before Arsenal’s Champions League match against Olympique de Marseille.

What did the forward, who recorded over 250 appearances, told Ozil? “You are the best”, or something cryptic like “Yellow eagle will deliver the packet at 2300 northwest”, or maybe it was just a nice “good luck”? We will never know.

But nevertheless the picture is a nice piece as it could be interpreted as the figuratively change at the helm, one legend passing the torch to a future one?

As we reported earlier Thierry Henry has returned to Arsenal to train with the club and keep his fitness up during the MLS winter break, just like the last two successive seasons.
