Mesut Ozil Is Unrecognizable: The Former Real Madrid Player Is Now a Muscle Man

Mesut Ozil spends a lot of time in the gym with his personal trainer. Now, the former national player is hardly recognizable, as he has gained quite a bit of muscle.

You’ll have to take a second look because the former national player Mesut Ozil is hardly recognizable. The 35-year-old diligently trains and proudly showcases this to his nearly 28 million Instagram followers. The hard work seems to have paid off, as Ozil has now become a true muscle man.

On Instagram, the former Real Madrid player is seen in the gym with heavy weights. In each hand, the 35-year-old holds a big dumbbell, working out his shoulders. At first glance, Ozil is hardly recognizable, it seems as if his arm circumference has almost doubled.

Over the past few months, the ex-professional footballer has undergone a physical transformation – from a sporty, but slender build, to a muscle-packed powerhouse. Mesut posts a sunglasses emoji and a flag of his adopted homeland, Turkey, along with the photo.

The video shared by Mesut was posted by personal trainer Alper Aksac, who has been featured on Ozil’s profile for several months. The two men not only share a passion for sport but have also become good friends: “You were my idol, now you are my idol and my big brother,” Aksac writes alongside a picture with the footballer.

However, another photo that shows the two men flaunting their toned abs sparks another discussion: Mesut Ozil’s chest is adorned with a tattoo: three crescents and a howling wolf, a symbol of the “Grey Wolves” – a far-right movement that is even monitored by Germany’s Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution. Whether the two men also share political views, however, is unclear.
