Germany’s leading newspaper Bild has Mesut Ozil on their front cover for all the wrong reasons today morning. The paper reports that former Bayern Munich and current Levante defender Christian Lell has claimed that the Arsenal midfielder had an affair with his ex-girlfriend Melanie Rickinger while she was in a relationship with someone else.
The report comes amidst of speculations that Ozil is no longer in a relationship with Mandy Capristo, as the German singer has further confirmed the news by deleting all of his photos from her Instagram account.
The initial reports say that Lell has taken the matter public via his Facebook account where he revealed a Whatsapp conversation between Ozil and Rickinger which apparently shows the pair flirting with one another.
And thanks to Bleacherreport’s, eagle eye reporting, we understand that this is not the first time that Ozil has been accused for such situation. During his days at Real Madrid, the German International reportedly spent £15,000 every couple of weeks to visit Aida Yespica, a former Miss Venezuela.
To make matters worse, today is Ozil’s 26th birthday, which he is already spending on the treatment table as he recovers from a knee injury. May be his personal life might have something to do with his performances on the pitch.
