London : Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been named as the German player of the year for the fourth time in the last five years.
The 27-year-old, who lost the award in 2014 to Real Madrid star Toni Kroos after winning it for three consecutive years, reclaimed the crown following a sensational return of form.
Ozil clinched the title by a comfortable margin over defender Thomas Muller and forward Jonas Hector, goal.com reported.
Ozil, who provided 16 assists and created 87 chances in Europe’s top-five leagues this season, appeared in all eight of Germany’s internationals this year.(ANI)
