The Manchester City midfielder was in high spirits with Arsenal star Mesut Ozil during training
Ilkay Gundogan has expressed his delight to make a return to the Germany camp as the Manchester City midfielder trained alongside Mesut Ozil on Thursday afternoon.
The summer signing was a second-half substitute in City’s 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon as Pep Guardiola suffered his first Premier League defeat.
Gundogan made his return from a serious knee injury earlier this season after the German playmaker agreed a move to the Eastlands outfit from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window.
And the 25-year-old midfielder looked to be in high spirits as he trained with Arsenal midfielder Ozil on Thursday afternoon ahead of their clash against the Czech Republic in their 2018 World Cup qualifier on Saturday night.
Gundogan posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“Feels good to join @dfb_team again 😊👍🇩🇪 @m10_official #NeverLoseFocus #fun #training #Hamburg #GERCZE”
Ozil moved to Arsenal in a £42.5m deal from La Liga outfit Real Madrid in August 2013.
The Gunners will take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on 17 December.
