Publisher's Summary

Mesut Ozil is a midfield magician, casting an elegant spell over opponents and conjuring passes through gaps lesser mortals can't even see. After an eventful sojourn among the Galacticos of Real Madrid, he has savoured silverware at Arsenal, while in 2014 he lifted the World Cup with Germany.

But his life and career have been a test of resilience. Growing up in Germany's Turkish community, he faced prejudice from those who claimed his dual identity would prevent him giving his all for the national team. Later came questions over a different type of commitment, the kind levelled against those, like Mesut Ozil, who excel in football's finer arts rather than relying simply on running and ruggedness. He has proved concerns on both these issues lack substance.

In Gunning for Greatness, Mesut Ozil reveals the inside stories of his relationships with Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger, his quest to help the under-fire Frenchman restore Arsenal's preeminence - and how he silenced the sceptics by conquering the world.

    "Great Read into common man & uncommon footballer"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gunning for Greatness: My Life?

    Pauses life insights along side a biography of his life at that moment.


    What about Rich Keeble’s performance did you like?

    He reads how it is and great emphasis on the tone of the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Gunning for Greatness"

    I have always admired Mesut Özil as a football player. Being able to read this book and understand more about him as a person as well as certain areas of football was very interesting. I found this book to be inspirational and humbling.
