Arsenal’s Mesut Özil has taken to Twitter to wish Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka.
Karanka used to coach Özil when he was Jose Mourinho’s assistant manager at Real Madrid.
Ozil tweeted the following message after Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Boro in the FA Cup, “Aitor, good luck for the rest of the season with @Boro!”
Middlesbrough are currently second in the Championship with 59 points in 31 games.
Özil won the La Liga title and the Copa del Rey while at Real Madrid with Karanka.
The World Cup winner also lifted the FA Cup with the Gunners following his record breaking £42.5 million move to Arsenal.
Özil completed 97 passes at a 92.5 percent accuracy and was given a rating of 8.50 by Whoscored.
The 26-year-old has now scored three times and created two assists in his last five games in all competitions for Arsenal.
