Arsenal star Mesut Ozil rewards Kenyan boy for second time
SEE ALSO :THREE clubs chasing Ozil revealedThe gift hamper comes barely less than two months after the 2014 World Cup winner sent Lawrence and his younger brother official Arsenal shirts signed by the German. Lawrence had caught the attention of Ozil through a Kenyan journalist Eric Njiru who tweeted a photo of the kid after spotting him herding cattle on the streets of Nairobi in 2018. In the photo, Lawrence was wearing a self-written “Ozil 10” shirt and eventually, the photo went viral. The tweet read: “I saw this kid today grazing in the streets of Nairobi – a city without real grass for cows. He told me he loves @MesutOzil1088 so much (You can see his shirt). Maybe one day this can reach Ozil and get a real Arsenal shirt.” The Arsenal star then responded and sent two official Arsenal shirts with “Ozil 10” on the back and football boots for Lawrence and his young brother.
These kids have just had a memory changing moment because of you Ozil! They will never forget this! Ramadhan Kareem man!— Breaking Bad (@GuruNgoso) May 7, 2019
