A NEWLY-WED Arsenal fan from Bognor has been invited to a match by his hero Mesut Ozil – with good reason.
Part of Ben Kean’s groom’s speech was devoted to his true love – midfielder Ozil.
“I feel incredibly lucky, and all that I hope is that this special someone knows from the bottom of my heart how much they truly mean to me,” Kean said in his speech, which he later posted online.
“I know it’s difficult to find someone who makes you feel this way and I’m never ever going to take it for granted. So can we please raise a toast ... to Mesut Ozil — thank you!”
After Ozil was alerted to the hilarious speech, in which luckily his new bride saw the funny side, the German invited Ben and his new wife to come as guests to a Gunners game after their honeymoon.
Kean thanked all those who helped ensure Ozil saw the clip. “Want to thank all my Arsenal family and friends wouldn’t have been able to get this video to Ozil without u guys sharing and tweeting,” he wrote.
“Dreams come true and all I wanted was him to see it and he has so mission accomplished owe it to everyone on twitter so thanks people.”
