PHOTOS: Mesut Ozil Gifts Kenyan Boy With Self-made Arsenal Shirt

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has gifted a young Kenyan fan with the club’s jersey and boots. This is after the German footballer saw a photo of the boy, named Lawrence, wearing a self- made Arsenal jersey bearing Ozil’s number 10.

Lawrence’s photo was brought to Ozil’s attention after a twitter user named Eric Njiru tagged him.

“I saw this kid today grazing in the streets of Nairobi- a city without really grass for cows. He told me he loves @MesutOzil1088 so much (you can see his shirt).

“Maybe one day this can reach Ozil and get a real @Arsenal shirt,” Njiru wrote posted on December 3, 2018.

The assists master proceeded to gift Lawrence and his brother an Arsenal jersey and football boots.

“The picture of a Kenyan boy with a self-made shirt on Twitter touched me so much.  And look at Lawrence now- it’s so heart-warming to see him and his brothers happy,” wrote Ozil.
