Arsenal in-form star Mesut Ozil has claimed an incredible fourth Germany National Team Player of the Year award after a mesmerizing year from the playmaker (via DFB).
The former Real Madrid midfielder has now dominated the awards for the fourth time in the five years, clinching it the title back from Toni Kroos who had played an integral role in the German’s World Cup success in 2014.
Winning the accolade consecutively between 2011-2013, Ozil clinched 45.9 % of the votes, wiping the floor easily with Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller coming a distant second with just 15.9 % (via DFB).
2015 was an incredible year for the German who experienced a turbulent opening two seasons of his Arsenal career, he is now well and truly settled in his favoured No10 role and recently won a third consecutive Arsenal Player of the Month, thoroughly cementing himself as a fan favourite.
Even the neutrals have recognized the midfielder wizards grace and precision, but he continues to be a dominant presence on the world stage, playing in eight of Germany’s nine matches in 2015, running an impressive 92.71 kilometres (average of 11.59 km per game) and laying on six assists (via DFB).
Congratulations to the 27-year-old who continues to get stronger year after year and is receiving the praise he deserves.
