Arsenal star Mesut Ozil assists Indian father in naming baby son

Mesut Ozil has added yet another assist to his tally by helping an Indian family name their newborn son.

Arsenal fan Inzamam Ul-Haq struck a bargain with his pregnant wife, Fida, that, should their baby be a boy, he'd be allowed to name the child after his favourite player.

Sure enough, little Mehd Ozil was born into the world on Dec. 29 last year.

The Gunners media team met Inzamam during a recent trip to the Indian city of Kerala, and more specifically the football-obsessed district of Malappuram.

"We had decided if it was a boy, we will name him after some Arsenal player. Ozil was my first priority," Inzamam said.

Given that his father's second choice was utility man Mohamed Elneny, we'd suggest that the kid has got the better deal there.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
