Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to wish his Arsenal teammate Mathieu Flamini a happy birthday.
Ozil posted a picture of himself alongside Flamini on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook along with the caption, “Happy birthday to my bro Mathieu!”
Flamini is now 31 years old. The Frenchman initially joined the Gunners side from Marseille back in 2004, before moving to AC Milan four seasons later.
After five campaigns in Italy, Flamini returned to Arsenal in 2013. His positional versatility has seen him play all across the midfield and occasionally in defence.
Özil has five assists in his last six league games – one against Aston Villa, two against Leicester City and two against Everton. Arsenal have also won in every league game the World Cup winner has provided an assist this season.
The 26-year-old has a total of four goals and seven assists in 19 appearances for Arsenal this season.
