Before today the Germany star had not tweeted since November 2011 before today but Mertesacker announced his return, promising ‘more tonight’ and signing off with his nickname ‘BFG’ – Big Fu**ing German.
At the time of writing, Mertesacker’s announcement had earned nearly 2,000 retweets from fans.
The 29-year-old has established himself as a favourite among the Emirates faithful since arrival in North London from Werder Bremen in 2011 and the lanky centre half has formed a formidable partnership with Frenchman Laurent Koscielny, helping Arsene Wenger’s side to the top of the Premier League.
