It’s a little known fact about the Germany international that he is a very keen admirer of the African animal and has a tattoo of one on his arm along with the message ‘Only God can judge me.’

“I see myself as a bit of a Lion,” the 26-year-old was quoted as saying by Turkish Football.

“Lions protect their family, they are like a king.

“They know why they want and when they make up their mind they will do anything to get it.

“They don’t care what others think, they focus on their own path.

“If something needs to get done they will do it no questions asked.

“I share some of these traits which is why I got a tattoo of a Lion.”

O…kay.
