Ozil can improve and make Arsenal title challengers, says Wenger
Arsene Wenger believes there is more to come from Mesut Ozil - so much that the Germany international can turn the Gunners into contenders to win the Premier League title, the Daily Mirror has reported.
Ozil, Arsenal’s club record signing, was part of the side that beat Stoke City on Sunday, and on his home debut produced two assists in the 3-1 triumph. The three points sent Wenger’s side to the top of the table, level on points with Tottenham Hotspur, but ahead of their north London rivals by virtue of goal difference.
And Wenger has said that Ozil will become the fulcrum of the Arsenal side, once he is fully up to speed with English football, having spent the last few years playing in the more sedate La Liga with Real Madrid.”[Ozil] gave a lift to everyone at the club. He will be the point of our team work, team play,” Wenger said.
“He will get better when he fully integrates into the pace of the game. It is not just him, the whole team. We look solid. My job here is to make everyone happy, hopefully they are happy at the moment.
“He’s a player, when you look at his numbers, the assists are not a coincidence, they are a reality of his game. He is a great player,” the manager continued, adding: “Football is football, good players make good passes, bad players make bad passes. Same in England. He has good pace as well, he plays a lot focusing on passing but he can create.”
