Should Arsenal worry about Ozil’s party lifestyle?

Before Arsenal had completed the stunning signing of Mesut Ozil on transfer deadline day, Arsene Wenger and the club were coming in for plenty of criticism for their perceived failure to do any significant business in the transfer market. A few people were astounded that Arsenal were struggling to bring in their targets, because the English Premier League and being in the Champions League is seen as a big draw. But there is also the attraction of the club being located in one of the most exciting cities in the world, London.

I don’t know whether being in London had any influence on Ozil’s decision to join the Gunners, but he did have a bit of a reputation in some sections of the Spanish media for being a bit of a party animal and a ladies man, as a report in today’s Mirror brings up. The story claims that Real Madrid were concerned about his regular trips to Italy to see a former Miss Venezuela Aida Yespica, (check her and his new girlfriend out at Just Wags News) were leaving him too tired to perform at 100 percent.

However, don’t worry too much, Gooners, because there is a feeling that Real Madrid, who have strong connections to the Spanish media, could be releasing stories designed to appease the Madrid fans who feel that their club has messed up by letting the German star come to the Emirates. He certainly seemed to be performing well enough according to his fantastic creativity and goal assist stats.

Also, the Daily Mail has reported that his current girlfriend, German singer Mandy Capristo, is already house hunting in London, so he won’t have to fly anywhere to see her.

About a year ago, a Spanish tv programme called Futboleros reported that Jose Mourinho was concerned about Ozil’s enjoyment of Madrid’s nightlife, but when you see that Ozil played 52 games for the club last season, it doesn’t appear to have bothered him too much. At the end of the day, it is how Ozil conducts himself on the pitch that Arsenal fans care about, and we will get our first chance to see him at Sunderland next weekend. I can’t wait!

          And the negative articles continue. What a waste of space. Does it matter if he enjoys his personal life? All that matter is when game day comes, he’s sober, he’s happy, he’s optimistic and sure as hell he’s a Top Gooner.

          i think we should give him contract extension offer, but wenger should not sign it now. he should sign it after proving his worth and thus answering the fans who have questioned him.

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. Ozil’s a practicing Muslim. He doesn’t drink. Real Madrid’s just feeding false stories to Marca so that the fans don’t lynch Florentino Perez for selling Ozil to buy the overrated monkey Spud.

    The Mirror have picked this up from a Madrid paper which are trying to make Ozil look bad and then these reports will stop the fans not getting behind the club. It is a campaign to bring our new star down he already said I am a very focused player I want to just get on and play football he doesn’t like the limelight so don’t read anything into this

    SO WHAT MAN his cow eyes attract women and it gives him pin point vision on the pitch its a gift its used for good and bad i guess sometimes people forget there are actual people who are wife snatchers like john terry and cashely cole but it does not affect them on the pitch

    he visits his girlfriend,fine,but recites his quran before a match to remain focused, if he delivers the assists for team,i can as well contribute to help him fly to italy frequently,who knows where he derives inspiration from.
    ozil has my full backing,he’$ in good hands anyway,wenger knows how to deal with this well.

    Ozil,”We will do everything to get as far as possible in all the competitions.I don’t go into any competitions saying: the aim us to reach the semi-finals or the final. When I play, I want to win.”

    i kind of like his statement ‘i love arsenal and would joined them for free’ class.
    reports going round suggests casillas is keen to join us. arsenal is the on a different level now,a trophy to clear the air,and we will all see how appealing the club has become.

    In his interview he mentioned Zidan, how he was a role model for him when he was a kid. And one thing he said he liked by Zizo was that he was a real ‘role mode’l on, and outside of the pitch, he didn’t have any “bad stories” attached to him…So I guess since he himself brought that up, he wants us to know, that’s he’s not coming to Arsenal to be a “party boy” in London!

    today ozil has once again stated in an interview how wenger persuaded him to join arsenal after a phone call on saturday before the north london derby….and he said that he would have joined arsenal even for free because of the confidence wenger gave him….. he said that initially he bought a return ticket from madrid to munich but after talking to wenger, he has bought a single ticket for london. welcome to arsenal and london ozil. hope this is the start of a new era… similar to the purchase of bergkamp..

    LOL Bob. :D

    Real Madrid don’t need the Spanish media, it has you doing it for them. Just kidding.

    I’ll be concerned when he is snapped falling over outside nightclubs with his trousers round his ankles, or in a kebab house trying to blag free food with the words, “You do know who I am, right?”

    Until rain comes down, why wear a raincoat?

    BS (the press report not so much this article) in my opinion.

    I saw an interview with Ozil in which he said (paraphrased) his idol was Zidane as he was a ”role model on and of the pitch. You never saw him partying and getting in trouble. You will see that I follow Zidane’s lifestyle.”

    Also, the Madrid fans are angry that Ozil has been sold to make way for the chimp.

    The chimp was only bought in a d.ck measuring contest between Perez at Madrid and Laporta/Rosell at Barca.

    Madrid weren’t happy at losing out on Neymar and Perez fans that he would do something even bigger.

    He did this by over spending on a player who can shoot well from distance, dribble a bit and…well…not much else really.

    Now fans are not happy with Ozil leaving and RM are making up stories like this to excuse the sale.

    Really poor from RM, but I expect nothing else from Perez to be fair.
