The Colombian international turned 27-years-old yesterday prompting Özil to send the following tweet, “#HappyBirthdayDavid @D_Ospina1 #Ospina #YaGunnersYa #Arsenal.”
Ospina joined the Gunners on a €4 million move from Nice last season and kept 10 clean sheets in 23 games for Arsenal.
Özil has been ruled out for a week due to a minor knee-injury according to the Independent.
The 26-year-old missed Arsenal’s clash with Newcastle due to a knee injury he sustained during training earlier this week. The Germany international missed three months of football last season with a knee injury .
Özil joins Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck, Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky on the sidelines.
The World Cup winner had started in all of Arsenal’s games this season until picking up his injury.
Ospina is yet to make an appearance for Arsenal this season.
