Mesut Ozil: Bambis & Break Ups
He does ‘deer in the headlights’ remarkably well, no? Images via ONTD_Football
So Mesut Ozil won a Bambi Award. We were laboring under the misapprehension that a Bambi was an appearance based honour awarded to those who look most like the Disney deer, a notion not dispelled by the above photo. However, for those who care, Mesut received his Bambi for ‘successful integration into German society’.
Meanwhile, Ozil’s attendance at the Bambi’s without his longtime partner Anna Maria Lagerblom prompted speculation that the two had split up, a rumour apparently confirmed by Ozil himself in German newspaper Berliner Morgenpost.
Quotes from Lagerblom herself in Bild, another German newspaper, also appear to confirm the split. In quotes from the paper, Lagerblom claims that the distance between the two since Ozil’s move to Real Madrid proved too much but there is no acrimony.
Mixed feelings here, Kickettes. They were a cute couple and any breakup gives us the sadz. But apart from certain deviations down a dark path, Mesut is a confirmed Kickette cutie and we’re not going to complain if it turns out he is back on the market. You?
