DID YOU KNOW ?

His first 31 Bundesliga matches ended without a single yellow card, bringing him the praise of sports magazine kicker as 'Mr. Clean' of the Bundesliga.

Since joining Arsenal, their fans have nicknamed him BFG, short for 'Big Fucking German'.

He has participated in the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cups and the UEFA Euros in 2008 and 2012.

In 2006 he established the 'Per-Mertesacker-Stiftung', a charitable foundation that helps support amateur sportsmen and the poor.

During his time at Hannover 96, he was good friends with the late Robert Enke, and along with Michael Ballack, presented the laurel during the memorial in honour of Enke's death.
