Mesut Ozil Pays Tribute to Arsenal Team-Mate and Olympics Star Serge Gnabry

Mesut Ozil has paid tribute to his Arsenal team-mate Serge Gnabry following the youngster’s impressive showing for Germany at the Rio Olympics.

Gnabry qualifies to participate as he is still under 23, and has taken the men’s football competition by storm, after scoring three times in the country’s opening two matches.

After coming off the bench to find the net against Mexico three days ago, Gnabry was handed a start against South Korea on Sunday night, and proceeded to come up with the goods and keep Germany’s hopes of claiming a medal alive.

The pacey winger, who had an unsuccessful loan at West Brom last season, grabbed a last-gasp equaliser in the Group C game in Salvador as both sides played out an entertaining 3-3 draw.

His exploits in South America has prompted his more famous Arsenal team-mate to acknowledge his performances:

Having made just 10 league appearances at Arsenal since 2012, it remains unclear if Gnabry has a long-term future at the Emirates, but judging by his Olympics performances, he certainly has a bright future somewhere.

Could this be his season to star with the Gunners?
