Gunners playmaker Mesut Ozil is enjoying his time in north London, and explained just why Arsenal and London are perfect for him.
Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has had a stunning start to his career at Emirates Stadium.
Three goals and four assists in his seven matches since indicate a settled player, and the German says he is having a blue whale of a time in north London.
Ozil feels that the unique and friendly environment of Arsenal is nothing like previous teams FC Schalke 04, Werder Bremen and Real Madrid.
“I’ve never experienced a club like this before,” said Ozil in an interview with Kicker, translated into English by the German FA.
“Everyone is equal, from the cleaning lady to the chairman; everyone is important, but no-one thinks they’re better than anyone else. Everyone treats each other with politeness and respect.
“I think it’s been evident in my first few games for Arsenal that I feel very comfortable here and my team-mates have been happy to play alongside me.”
Ozil also expanded on how much he is enjoying his time in London.
“This city is fantastic; I think it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
“As a private person, I’m enjoying the area – there’s always something to discover.”
