Ozil can win Arsenal the title, says Real Madrid's Khedira
Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira believes Mesut Ozil is the key to Arsenal’s chance of winning their first Premier League title in nine years, ESPN has reported.
Ozil has been pivotal in Arsenal’s current run of form which sees them top of the Premier League after seven games, having created three goals for the Gunners. Ozil’s countryman Khedira is of the belief that his former teammate can lead Arsenal to success.
“They already had a strong team in any case, but Mesut makes them into the best team in England,” Khedira said. “I am sure he can be the player that makes things happen for them and win them the championship. Mesut is a genius on the field, there is no other way to describe him.”
Meanwhile, Ozil’s departure from Real Madrid seems to be having an effect on Carlo Ancelotti’s side, with Los Blancos already five points behind league leaders Barcelona.
Khadira admitted there was sadness at the Santiago Bernabeu following Ozil’s sale, but is respectful of his decision: “There was some disappointment among Madrid's players because he is the best in the world in his position, but I understand his decision as a player and a friend,” he said.
