Arsenal star delighted after receiving No.10 shirt

Gunners midfielder Mesut Ozil has admitted he is delighted after being handed the No.10 shirt at the club for next season.

The German has taken advantage of Jack Wilshere departing Arsenal this summer, and will don the famous shirt from now on.

Ozil has always been a fan of the shirt number, wearing it for Germany as well as Real Madrid before making his move to the Emirates.

It is no secret that the midfielder has a special place for the No.10 shirt, and upon announcing the news that he would be wearing it next season, he revealed it is a dream come true.

“It has never been a secret how special this number is to me. My childhood idol Zinedine Zidane wore this number and it is still the most characteristic one for the playmaker position,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to putting it on for the first time at Arsenal after the summer break.”

Arsenal also announced any fans who bought a 2018/19 season shirt with Ozil’s No.11 number on the back will be sent a replacement. That applies to home and away shirts and the club advised supporters who bought from an official Arsenal store to return to the shop and present a receipt for a replacement.
