A new video has emerged online showing Arsenal playmaker, Mezut Ozil, signing a yellow card after the referee in Arsenal’s friendly against Paris Saint-Germain asked for his autograph.
The German playmaker, who recently announced his resignation from international duty after the World Cup over claims he was being racially persecuted by sections of the crowd and Germany FA, was handed the Arsenal captaincy for their International Champions Cup clash with PSG on Saturday, and he found himself in a rather bizarre situation before kick-off.

As the playmaker stood clutching an Arsenal pennant ready to lead his side onto the pitch, he was approached by the “obviously fascinated” match official, who appeared to have requested the player to autograph his yellow card.
The Arsenal captain’s day got even better after taking to the pitch, as he opened the scoring after just 12 minutes against the French giants.
There is no gainsaying that new Gunners boss Unai Emery is behind the Turkey-born schemer as he made him captain for Saturday’s match.
