Mesut Ozil has picked his dream five-a-side team, but for some reason he used the rule that there must be one player from Brazil, Italy, France, Croatia and England.
It is not clear how the Arsenal man came up with the heavily contrived question, but he has made his choices and it is not good news for his Gunners teammates.
Ozil tweeted: ‘Make your dream 5-a-side team only using one active player from each country!
‘My choices: Brazil – Marcelo, Italy – Gianluigi Buffon, France – Karim Benzema, Croatia – Luka Modric and England – Marcus Rashford.’
Arsenal fans will be all the more annoyed to see Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford make the cut, but no Gunners manage it.
In truth, there are not too many Arsenal players who would be viable given Ozil’s rules of the game, with top players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Thomas Partey, Dani Ceballos, Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney all out of the question.
However, the likes of Willian, David Luiz and Alexandre Lacazette may have all been expecting a nod from their teammates.
He remains at the club and trains with his team, as his teammate Bernd Leno explains, but his competitive future at the Emirates looks to be at an end.
‘Mesut is still a part of the team and trains with us,’ Leno told German outlet BILD.
‘He is absolutely professional, both on the pitch and in the changing room.
‘Obviously it’s a disappointing situation for him but Mesut handles it well and is absolutely loyal.’
