Özil has posted an image with his dog on Instagram for the second time in a week.
Özil has a history of sharing cryptic messages through his pictures, the 26-year-old has posted images of lions, his shirt on fire, hand signals and his latest trend seems to be posing with his dog.
Perhaps he is trying to send out a message that he has a loyal friend. Manchester United legend Roy Keane did after all famously say, “Unlike humans, dogs don’t talk sh*t.”
Arsenal defeated Liverpool by a 4-1 scoreline in the Premier league last weekend. The 26-year-old scored a well placed free-kick in the first half and was one of Arsenal’s top performers.
The Gunners overtook Manchester City, moving into second place following the win.
The World Cup winner has been in impressive form for the North London based club since the turn of the year.
Özil was recently found to be the second best performing attacking midfielder in Europe in 2015 by the CIES Football Observatory’s latest performance rankings.
