Mesut Ozil pays for sick kids

The Arsenal and Germany star has donated his world cup winning bonus to poor children in Brazil and has now paid for the recovery of 11 more children

Whatever people make out of his performances on the pitch, it is safe to say that there is a huge humanitarian spirit living inside the former Real Madrid man who won the Laureas Award last year after donating his world cup winnings for the rehabilitation of kids in Brazil.

And now, the Gunners playmaker has paid for the recovery of 11 kids in South America whose families are too poor to afford the right treatment. With fond memories of Brazil, Ozil wants to stay involved in the Samba nation.

‘I want to continue to leave a positive mark in Brazil by financing elven more children’s operations,’ he said.

‘For me it’s very important that I carry on providing help for the children of Brazil.’
