Ian Wright claims he noticed something “brilliant” about Mesut Ozil’s goal celebration during Arsenal’s 5-1 win at home to Bournemouth on Wednesday.
The pair scored to put Arsenal on course for the win before Lys Mousset pulled one back – only for Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette to strike after the interval.
When you see Ozil’s goal on first viewing it looks like a simple dink over Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc – but Arsenal legend Wright has explained how he knows it was more complex than that.
Gary Lineker, who presents Match of the Day on the BBC asked Wright: “You’ve noticed something about Ozil’s finishing?”
To which Wright replied: “He kicks down on to the ball. He bounces it on purpose. He did it against Huddersfield and he kicked down on to it against Bournemouth.
“Instead of chipping it over a keeper he bounces it over him. You can see him telling everyone what he did [while celebrating].
“It’s just such a brave finish for someone to do, it’s brilliant. It’s the Ozil.”
