Mesut Ozil scored a very different kind of assist for Arsenal this week after agreeing to showcase the club’s latest Christmas jumper offering.
December 25th may still be a whole month away but that has not stopped the good folk at the Emirates from wheeling out their latest festive offering in a bid to ensure as many Gunners supporters as possible part with more cold hard cash over the holidays.
After a sensational run of goals and assists for Arsenal, Ozil was the obvious choice for such Yuletide shenanigans and ably showcased his new wears in one very merry tweet.
Adopting the team’s colours of red and white, the jumper features a snowman wearing an Arsenal scarf alongside the club’s official crest.
Just how such a snowman could afford said scarf is anyone’s guess but we must admit it looks rather neat, and Ozil definitely pulls off the Christmas jumper look.
In the accompanying message, the German urges Arsenal fans to wear them to the next game but, given the number of empty seats seen during their clash with Dinamo Zagreb, he may just be better off asking them to attend in the first place.
And while Ozil is an excellent model for such an item we can’t help but wonder why Olivier Giroud was not chosen to model the new look given that, while his skills as a striker are debatable, he certainly looks like a model.
Then again, maybe we are just being scrooges, or Stan Kroenkes as they call them in North London!
