Mesut Özil is quickly cementing himself as an Arsenal legend, with his actions both on and off the pitch making him a real fan favourite. His latest stunt has only further served to endear fans to the German playmaker, with the Arsenal No.10 contacting one fan in particular who dedicated his wedding toast to the creative genius, as reported by the Mirror.
The impudent groom gave a touching speech at his wedding, a speech seemingly directed at his new wife. When it came to raising a glass to the new couple however, he asked his family and friends to drink to Mesut Özil as opposed to his blushing (and possibly slightly angry) bride.
Check out the clip below:
Özil responded in typically classy fashion, sending his compliments over Twitter. He promised to congratulate the couple personally post honeymoon, as well as offering up an invitation to a future Arsenal game.

The 27-year-old has always been popular among Arsenal fans, ever since his arrival from Real Madrid. Even when he wasn’t quite at his best, the moments of magic he produced still garnered him plenty of support. As his form has improved though – along with his grasp of the English language – he is further ensuring his place in Arsenal folklore; with his 16 assists so far this season certainly helping.
He was handed a rest for our 3-1 FA Cup win over Sunderland this past weekend, so hopefully he’ll be fully rejuvenated for our clash with Liverpool in midweek. He’s been truly pivotal in our success this season, and will no doubt continue to prove so in the second half of the campaign.

The groom will almost certainly be incredibly grateful for the invitation, and hopefully his wife is somewhere close to as big an Arsenal fan as he is.
