Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil splits with Mandy Capristo after Levante full-back alleges affair
Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil has reportedly split from long-term girlfriend Mandy Capristo after a former Bayern Munich defender alleged the World Cup winner was too close to his girlfriend.
Levante right-back Christian Lell claims that Ozil was having an affair with his ex Melanie Rickinger.
Lell claims Ozil, who turned 26 today, was “always in his relationship” with Rickinger.
The 30-year-old has released a WhatsApp chat that allegedly shows Ozil flirting with Rickinger while they were both in relationships.
Capristo has deleted all photos of her and Ozil together from her social media accounts.
Ozil has been criticised for his poor form in recent months and is now ruled out for three months with a knee injury sustained during the defeat to Chelsea in Arsenal’s last Premier League outing.
