Mesut Ozil has jumped on the David Beckham bandwagon by wishing the Manchester United legend a happy 40th birthday on Saturday evening.

The former England captain celebrated his milestone by joining popular photo-sharing app Instagram on this morning.

Beckham has already shot to an incredible 2.4m followers on the social media app site, which is still 200,000 less than Arsenal club-record signing Ozil.

The World Cup winner took to his Instagram page to give Beckham a plug as well as wish his fellow Adidas ambassador happy birthday.

Ozil posted the above photo and wrote on Instagram: “Happy 40th Birthday! Enjoy your weekend! @davidbeckham”

Germany international Ozil has scored four goals and has made five assists in 17 Premier League appearances this season.

The former Real Madrid midfielder missed three months of the campaign after he injured his knee in a 2-0 defeat by Chelsea last October.

FA Cup finalists Arsenal face Hull City at KC Stadium on Monday night.
