However, the 29-year-old former Real Madrid star took time out to treat himself to some traditional Turkish dishes on Sunday.

While enjoying his meal, Ozil posted a picture of himself and his friend surrounded by a banquet of food over the weekend as they dined at Likya Turkish restaurant in Golders Green.

According to Dailymail, the Gunners star, who was born to Turkish immigrant parents, has been a regular at the restaurant since moved to the Emirates Stadium side in 2013.

The attacker was even said to have struck some kind of friendship with the co-owner of the restaurant - which specialises in Turkish cuisine - Hasan Dolanbay.

This victory made it five wins out of seven matches for Arsenal in the Premier League, having started the season on a losing note.
