Mesut Ozil: This is why I left Real Madrid to join Arsenal


Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has revealed that manager Arsene Wenger and the way the Gunners play were all reasons why he left Real Madrid to move to North London.

The Germany international joined Arsenal for £42.4m in the summer of 2013 and quickly became one of the most important players in the Frenchman's line-up.

He featured 77 times for Arsenal, scoring 12 goals and providing 25 assists.

"He [Arsene Wenger] knows exactly how I tick and I know exactly what he thinks of me," Ozil told Arsenal Player.

"I just want to help the team as much as possible on the pitch - that's my target.

"Of course sometimes things work better than at other times, that's football, but the manager believes in me and that means a lot to me.

"He has experience and in past years you've seen him develop some top players. I get on really well with him and he gives me his trust. I'm thankful to him for that and to be praised by a coach like him means a lot.

"I thank him for that through good performances on the pitch.

"Before I joined, I knew that Arsenal were always a technically-strong team.

"That's also why I decided to join this club, because I know exactly what the manager wants from the team.

"Our game centres around playing good, technical football and that's good. It's thanks to the manager because he's worked on that for years and has formulated a technically-gifted team that can dominate any opposition.

"That's why we're really pleased to have a manager like him."
