Gunners fans excited after Mesut Ozil Spaniard will ‘bring success’ to Arsenal after making move
Mesut Ozil has assured Arsenal fans that Mikel Arteta will bring success back to the club.
After months, and months, AND MONTHS, of speculation, Arsenal made the shock decision to appoint Arteta as the successor to Unai Emery, after the Spaniard got the sack after failing to take the club back into the Champions League and challenging for top trophies.
Arteta has not inherited the best of squads at the Emirates and needs to bring in a few world class players in order to challenge again, but Ozil, who is showing signs he is enjoying his football again since his former teammate took over, has come out and claimed that Arteta will indeed bring success back to the Emirates.
He was quoted on the TalkSport website: “He knows what to say to us, how to give us a positive attitude and how to make us be successful. I can see he is really hungry, but at the same time he is very down to earth and that is a very good characteristic to make us be a successful team.
“It is basically getting us back to the old Arsenal virtues. Fighting and having possession, being in control of the game, having the ball all the time.
“These are the things that he is working on with us and you can see it – everyone is smiling, laughing, enjoying their time at the moment and this has made us be successful now.
“I think he is the right man at this club.”
Ozil is one of the Gunners biggest players and one of the best number tens in world football, when he is on top form. But he has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past 12 months as his performances in an Arsenal shirt have not matched the wages he was given under Arsene Wenger.
Arteta needs him to step up and be the man that the club need, and the Spanish boss also needs the backing of the Arsenal fans, the patience of the board and the money it will take to be serious contenders once again.
