Mesut Ozil Kisses Bread Thrown At Him From Opposition Fans

Web Desk(April 28, 2018): Mesut Ozil, a German Muslim footballer, kissed a piece of bread thrown at him by Atletico Madrid fans.

The incident happened during Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with the Spaniards in the Europa League semi-final at the Emirates.

The piece of bread was thrown when he was preparing to take a corner kick.

Instead of kicking it away, he did an unexpected thing because it is against Muslim culture to waste any food.

 He observes fasting during the Islamic month of Ramadan, but he has admitted that: “Because of my job I cannot follow Ramadan properly. I do it only a few days I can, only when I have a free day. But other than that it’s impossible because you have to drink and eat a lot to stay at peak fitness.”

In May 2016, he performed Umrah.
