Former Arsenal star Ozil celebrates wildly after scoring first Fenerbahce goal

Former Arsenal talisman Mesut Ozil celebrated wildly after he found the net for the first time in 18 months on Sunday.

Ozil, who currently plays for Turkish giants Fenerbahce, was frozen out of the Arsenal side by Mikel Arteta.

And after spending months in limbo, the German was finally able to leave the Gunners last January on a free transfer.

Ozil hadn't scored since February 2020, before the start of the Coronavirus pandemic in the UK, and he could hardly believe his look just after the start of the second half.

Ozil tucked the ball home from close range to break his duck.

11 seconds into the second half, Ozil was able to tap the ball home from close-range after latching onto a cross.

It was the only goal of the game as Fenerbahce took the three points away from Adana Demirspor.

The former World Cup winner could barely contain his excitement as he wheeled off to celebrate, and he was mobbed by a barrage of his teammates.

"I am very excited because I was always a fan of Fenerbahce," he told the club’s official TV channel when he signed for the side in January.

"My dream has come true. I am very excited to wear the Fenerbahce jersey. I hope we will be very successful with my teammates."

Ozil made 11 appearances for Fenerbahce last season, and he registered one assist.

However, he has been unable to find the net until Sunday's clash.
