In the mag: Özil, FFT's Top 100 Players in the World, Tiger of the Month...
In this month's issue of the world’s greatest football magazine, we meet the man letting Arsenal dare to dream of the Premier League title again: Mesut Özil. After endless transfer windows of false hope and ridicule, nobody was sneering when Arsene Wenger secured the £42.5m coup of Real Madrid's assist machine.
So far he hasn't disappointed either, linking up with the likes of Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud in a way that makes those inside the Emirates Stadium feel all warm and gooey inside (unless they're in the away end). We delve deeper into the career of the 25-year-old passmaster to find out more about his roots in Gelsenkirchen, what he really thinks of the dual nationaly debate and why he couldn't say no to the Gunners' influential manager.
The arguing is over, the results are in and the people have had their say on Twitter (believe us, they really have) - but what about the men themselves? Are you impressed that we predicted the FIFA Ballon d'Or results by declaring Cristiano Ronaldo our new No. 1? Check it if you don't believe us! Besides the Portuguese superstar, we chat with the likes of Borussia Dortmund duo Marco Reus and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Santi Cazorla, Sergio Ramos, Pedro, Alvaro Negredo and more to find out what makes them tick. And, of course, we've got the full list covered for your inevitable disagreement. Find us (but come on, we've got feelings too y'know) at #FFT100.
There's also some local flavour with our very own Tiger of the Month - an exclusive interview with Sarawak FA defensive midfielder Junior Eldstål. The 22-year-old has already made a name for himself with some fantastic displays for club and country, and you can find out more about him within these very pages!
