<SUNBIGHT> – Arsenal and Germany midfield star Mesut Ozil has expressed his delight, after meeting childhood idol Austin Okocha.

The legendary Nigerian skipper graced Thursday’s Europa League clash between his former clubs Fenerbahce and Frankfurt.

The game which was played in Istanbul Turkey ended 1-1 with Ozil an unused substitute for Fenerbahce.

Prior to kick-off, Okocha was presented to the fans and waved a jersey with his name and number 10 inscribed on the back.
