Per Mertesacker praises ‘special’ Arsenal fans while clutching a copy of The BFG [Video]

Per Mertesacker appeared on this weekend’s Football Focus Sporting Relief.

The Big Fucking German praised Arsenal’s ‘special’ fans for the support they’ve given him from day one, even during his mistake-laden begging in English football.

Also clutching a copy of Roald Dahl’s BFG after which he was nicknamed (does he carry that everywhere now?), Mertesacker reminded Garth Crooks of the significance of the nickname and how much it means to him.
