Premier Paving for Premier League Footballer

The recent installation of a new driveway at the £9m north London home of Mesut Özil was all over the press early in May.

As speculation grew as to whether, or not the £42.5m midfielder would be extending his contract with Arsenal, the installation of a new driveway seemed to indicate to some journalists that he would be staying.

Having joined Arsenal in 2013, German born Mesut Özil previously played for Real Madrid and has been a member of his national team since 2006.

It’s not Tarmac, it’s SureSet resin bound paving! 

While it was reported that Mesut’s driveway was being Tarmacked, the reality is that the premier league player had instead, opted for a premier paving surface – SureSet.

With an obvious preference for the finer things in life, 28-year old Mesut is a huge fan of prestige motor cars; reportedly owning a Ferrari 458 Italia, a customised Mercedes-Benz G63 and a Lamborghini (among many others!).

Mesut’s ownership of a Ferrari is a hot topic for discussion because of his striking similarity to the founder of the Italian sports car Enzo Ferrari. Mesut was born three months after Ferrari died.
