Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil: Why I love spending my money on cars

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil discusses his love for cars and Hip Hop music

Mesut Ozil admits that spending money on cars is one of the few luxuries he allows himself.

The Gunners playmaker is one of Arsenal’s highest earning players and is believed to net around £140,000 a week as part of his current deal.

Ozil has revealed that he is a big fan of cars and is currently driving a Mercedes G-Class.

Speaking in a Q&A with Adidas, Ozil said: “I’m a big lover of cars and it’s one of the few luxuries I enjoy spending my money on.

“Right now you’d find me behind the wheel of a Mercedes G-Class. It’s a really awesome car.”

Ozil has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers this season.

The World Cup winner has scored three goals and notched up 16 assists for his team-mates to help Arsenal top the Premier League table heading into this weekend’s clash with Chelsea at Emirates Stadium.

The Germany international went on to reveal that Kanye West and Drake are among his favourite musicians.

He continued: “I’ll listen to music before every match to get myself psyched up and right now I’m really into my Hip Hop.

“It’s hard to say who is the biggest boss in hip hop, as it’s a genre full of incredible performers. But if I could choose my ideal gig it would be kicked off by Kanye West – currently my favourite artist – followed by Wiz Khalifa and finished by Drake.”
