This Brilliant Picture Shows How Much Mesut Ozil Has Bulked Up


Before his cameo return today, Mesut Ozil had been out for three months. He had clearly spent a lot of the time in the gym as the picture below shows.

The German World Cup winner returned with a 17 minute appearance today as Arsenal brushed Stoke aside. Perhaps his injury could have been a blessing in disguise, as many believed he needed to bulk up to adjust to the robust nature of the Premier League. He looks a lot bulkier than this time last year.

I’m personally delighted to see he has been working hard in the gym. Whilst his technical ability is hard to match, Ozil always lacked the strength to keep the ball and jostle with players, something which happens a lot in the Premier League. Hopefully we will see him getting more involved now that he has the muscle to do so.
