Per Mertesacker

The BFG is in a run of good form lately. He’s such a security blanket, although I still think he gets beat up in the air too much for being a 6’6″ behemoth.

Per doesn’t exert himself too terribly much either, so rests aren’t always necessary. Plus, it’s important to have common fixtures on the defense like the lumbering German.
