All of the nonsense surrounding Mesut Ozil’s recent night out with a mysterious girl may finally be over after 101GreatGoals reported that the brunette in question was just a long-time friend of the German.
Reports earlier this week appeared to suggest that the Arsenal playmaker may have found himself a new girlfriend, despite being in a relationship with German popstar Mandy Capristo.
Such is the intense focus on Mesut Ozil at the moment, it seems he can do little right on or off the pitch, but the conspiracy theory may finally be put to bed after it was revealed that the women photographed with him was actually his close friend Amine Gulse.
The former Miss Turkey is understood to have been friends with the midfielder for many years now and has previously denied any suggestions of a romance between the pair.
With the mystery now all-but over, it looks like the anti-Ozil brigade will have to find something else to criticise him for, although they may soon have new ammunition if he fails to turn up for Arsenal’s crucial Champions League last 16 first-leg meeting with Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
