Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to with Antonio Rudiger all the best in his recovery after the Roma defender was ruled out of Euro 2016 with a knee injury.

Centre-back Rudiger ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a training session on Tuesday.

The Germany international is set to miss this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament in France as a result of the injury, with Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah having been called up to the squad as his replacement.

And Arsenal playmaker Ozil was quick to offer his condolences to Rudiger after the devastating injury blow for the Roma defender.

Ozil posted the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Very bad news for our team for the upcoming #Euro2016 yesterday evening… but you’re a fighter, bro! get well soon! @toniruediger @DFB_team #ComeBackStronger #JederFuerJeden”

Ozil was one of the Premier League’s standout performers last season as he notched up 19 assists for his team-mates.
