On Wednesday, the Arsenal midfielder participated in a Twitter AMA titled “#AskMesut,” wherein he made himself available to answer a wide range of questions from his nearly 25 million followers.
However, things got super interesting when one fan asked Ozil to name his best starting line-up of players he has played alongside.
Mesut Ozil boldly named a whopping eight Real Madrid players he had played alongside during his three-year stint at the club, including Cristiano Ronaldo. Two other players were his teammates during his time with Germany national team. At the same time, the remaining slot went to his former Arsenal player.
Meanwhile, none of his current Arsenal teammates received the nod in Mesut Ozil’s dream XI.

In an arrangement, Ozil’s selection depicts the 4-2-3-1 formation and features the following players;
-Philipp Lahm – Sergio Ramos – Jerome Boateng – Marcelo;
-Xabi Alonso – Santi Cazorla;
-Angel Di Maria – Ricardo Kaka – Cristiano Ronaldo;
Again, in the follow-up question, the 31-year old Arsenal midfielder was asked about his favorite memory at the Spanish capital. Mesut Ozil responded saying; “The titles we’ve won there as a team.”
Finally, as a player who has faced some of the toughest defenders of this generation both at the international and club level, the playmaker was quizzed to name the best defender he has faced so far. “Carles Puyol,” Ozil answered briefly.
