Mesut Ozil is fortunate enough to have seen a number of legendary footballers play over the years.
From Cristiano Ronaldo and Iker Casillas at Real Madrid to Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp at Arsenal, our No 10 is spoilt for choice when it comes to picking his dream team.
So who would make it into Ozil’s five-a-side lineup for each side?
“I’ll start with Madrid,” he told Arsenal Player. “I think Zidane of course, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ramos, Raul… that’s already four or five. And obviously Casillas. Those players are legends and played a lot of games for the club, and won everything with the club.
“I could also say Roberto Carlos, Guti or Ronaldo, the Brazilian one, but I didn’t play with them. They’ve had really, really good players in the past.
“For Arsenal, it would be Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires, Ljungberg and the goalkeeper would be David Seaman. That’s my legendary team for Arsenal.”
Our legends will take on Real Madrid's at Emirates Stadium on Saturday - and tickets are still available here
