‘He’s Mesut’: Newcastle Jets’ Kosta Grozos compared to former Real Madrid star


Youngster Kosta Grozos kicked his first A-League goal over the weekend for the Newcastle Jets FC and pushed his team past Melbourne Victory 2-1 in a thrilling match.

Since then, the 22-year-old has been likened to Mesut Ozil – a FIFA Men’s World Cup winner and a former Arsenal and Real Madrid star.

“He was fantastic,” Jets full-back and ex-Arsenal defender, Carl Jenkinson, said about Grozos.

“I call Kosta Mesut sometimes. I say he plays like Mesut Ozil.

“We have players like Kosta who can come in and make a difference and win a game for us. Fair play to Kosta. He is a lovely kid and I’m buzzing for him.”

Newcastle have now gone five matches without defeat to be right in the hunt for finals football this season.
