Mesut Ozil, Bernd Leno, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Shkodran Mustafi were treated to a tour of Dubai, visiting the city’s latest attractions and legendary landmarks, and taking in the striking architecture and impressive skyline.
The players were picked up on a hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing bus, making their first stop at the Dubai Frame. They toured the spectacular structure, which boasts panoramic views of both old and new Dubai at 150 metres high.
The players stepped onto the glass bridge in the transparent viewing deck, showing off their ball-juggling skills high above the city.
The frame is Dubai’s latest architectural landmark, situated in a unique location that offers views via its 93 metre bridge observatory.
The players then continued to the world’s tallest building, the 828-metre high Burj Khalifa, and also passed the Dubai Canal during their sightseeing tour, which was hosted by lead partner Emirates.
The players are currently in Dubai for a warm-weather training camp and friendly match against Al Nasr, before the Premier League action recommences next Monday.
