Arsenal star Ozil sends football kits to Kenyan kid [Photos]
Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has shown his class off the pitch by assisting a young Kenyan boy with his authentic club jersey and football boots.
The boy, Lawrence was snapped by a social media user in December while herding cattle with a makeshift Arsenal shirt that has the name and number of the former Germany international written boldly with a marker.
Fortunately, Ozil got the message on Twitter and he has taken action by putting smiles on the boy’s face with pairs of boots and newly-signed Arsenal jerseys.
The gesture might not be a big deal for the 30-year-old who earns £350,000-a-week at the Emirates Stadium but it goes a long way in lifting the spirits of the boy who was captured in Nairobi.
The picture of a Kenyan boy with a self made shirt on Twitter touched me so much. 🇰🇪❤ And look at Lawrence now – it's so heartwarming to see him and his brothers happy🙏🏼😘 #SocialMediaPower 💪🏼 #HappyToAssist #Nairobi #M1Ö pic.twitter.com/nQWgc0cABt
