Mesut Özil appears to be back with long-term girlfriend Mandy Capristo, with the Arsenal star posting this image on his Instagram earlier on Thursday.
The German playmaker was with Capristo for quite some time, but their relationship ended badly when Bild posted flirty text messages apparently between Özil and another woman (via the Mirror).
The woman in question was the one time girlfriend of international teammate Christian Lell, and the story understandably caused serious problems for Özil.
It looks as though the two have made up though, with Capristo and Özil looking extremely happy in the photo. There’s also a rather telling caption, which certainly suggests the two have rekindled things.
“Just the two of us… #happy #selfie #ozistoisback #bambi2015”

Özil is certainly a lucky man, as Capristo is unquestionably drop dead gorgeous, as well as being a hugely talented singer.
It’s unclear how long it’s been since the pair started seeing each other again, but it could have been a while before they actually made it public. A reunion with Capristo could be contributing to the former Real Madrid star’s good mood, which could in turn be helping his on-field performances.

Hopefully things run a little more smoothly this time around, and the pair are very happy together – especially if their relationship has anything to do with Özil’s superb recent form.
