Arsenal ace seeks trophies
Arsenal’s new recruit Mesut Ozil believes that the Gunners will end their eight-year wait for a trophy this season.
When asked on the Arsenal website whether he believed the Gunners would win their first trophy since their FA Cup sin in 2005 he replied confidently: “definitely”.
“In the last few years, Arsenal haven’t been so successful but we want to become more successful,” he added.
Ozil signed for a club record fee of £42.4milliion on transfer deadline day and ended a summer of frustration for the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger missed out on countless targets, including Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez, but put his money where his mouth is to sign the Germany international.
Ozil comes to North London as the finished article and someone who has experience of winning and playing at the top level of football.
The 24-year-old won La Liga in 2011-2012 with Real Madrid and was named in the Euro 2012 team of the tournament.
And has also won the Spanish Super Cup and the Copa del Rey with Madrid.
However, Ozil still believes he can improve as a player and believes that Wenger is the man to lead him forward.
He added: “The coach is a world-class manager – he’s demonstrated that for years.
“A lot of players have developed under his guidance in the past and that’s why I decided to join Arsenal.
“I want to improve myself further and I’m looking forward to the style of play.
“Arsenal are well known for the strength of their technical game and their desire to play attacking football. I think I will fit perfectly into that.”
