The supporter asked: “What was it like playing with Ronaldo?”

Ozil cheekily replied: “Ask him, he played with me.”

Fans found it hilarious, one commented: “He even gave a sly smile at the end.”

Another reminisced: “The Ozil-Ronaldo connection was unreal. What a team that was.”

The playmaker featured alongside Ronaldo in three seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The duo were on the pitch at the same time on 149 occasions and Ozil assisted CR7 for a remarkable 31 goals.

Their link-up play helped fire Real Madrid to a LaLiga title as well as one Copa del Rey and Supercopa de Espana trophies.

Only Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have assisted Ronaldo more often, 47 and 32 times respectively.


After his success at Real Madrid, Ozil moved to Arsenal and set up 78 goals in 254 appearances.

The World Cup winner then made the switch to Fenerbahce before joining Istanbul Basaksehir.

The 34-year-old has played just seven times this season and there have been rumours that he could soon retire.
