Per Mertesacker is a German professional footballer who plays as a centre back for Arsenal. Mertesacker, dubbed "the Defence Pole" (die Abwehrlatte) by German tabloids, gained a reputation for his good disciplinary record and went 31 Bundesliga games without being booked. Since joining Arsenal, the Gooners have nicknamed him the BFG, which is short for "Big Fucking German" and an allusion to Roald Dahl's The BFG due to his height. He has been described as an imposing, reliable, dominant and accomplished defender. His quiet but effective game often uses his strength to shrug off opponent, and his standing tackling ability wins balls.
