We are not sure about you but, when it comes to the week of our birthday, we like to chill out, take things easy and celebrate getting another year older with our family and friends, as a birthday is something to be excited about, not afraid of. However, it seems that Arsenal's German midfield star Mesut Ozil has nothing to celebrate this week, despite it being his birthday week.
Mesut Ozil should have been celebrating his birthday yesterday but, instead of surrounding himself with his loved ones, there is one particular loved one who has left his life. Mesut had been dating Mandy Capristo but it has now been reported that the couple have split up, following suggestions that Ozil has cheated on Capristo with Melanie Rickinger.
German tabloid Bild reported that Mesut Ozil and Mandy Capristo had split earlier this week, with these claims being supported by Levante defender Christian Lell, who suggested that Mesut was cheating with his ex-girlfriend Melanie Rickinger. These claims have no been backed up by Mandy herself, who has deleted all evidence of her relationship with Ozil from her social media accounts.
This has now led to many Arsenal fans coiming out to suggest that his poor relationship status is the main reason that he has not been performing so well for the club this season. We guess cheating on your partner can go either way then, as when Ryan Giggs was cheating on his wife with Welsh model Imogen Thomas, he had a great season for Manchester United.
Mesut Ozil is currently out of action with a knee injury.
