Arsenal’s Ozil welcomes responsibility

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has said he welcomes the chance to take responsibility after the Germany international was criticised ahead of the World Cup, according to ESPN.

Ozil has in recent international fixtures been booed by the Germany supporters and came under fire for his performances for the Gunners in the middle of the season, with manager Arsene Wenger coming to his player’s defence.


The former Real Madrid player has told German publication Bild that he doesn’t hide when the pressure is on and feels his track record should count for more. “I am no longer a talent but an experienced player who has played in three countries. I take responsibility,” he said.


“The FA Cup win means that I have won three finals,” Ozil continued, referencing Arsenal’s win over Hull City in May. “I was voted Germany player of the year three times running and in the team of the year in England - always by the fans. And that is also important to me.


“I feel that I have the trust of Joachim Low and Arsene Wenger and that I have earned it. I am now 25 years old and at that age every footballer in the world plays in a different way to what he did when he was 21.


“And, of course, my role at Arsenal is different insomuch that I have more responsibility than I did at Real [Madrid]. And I like that.”


Ozil moved to the Emirates Stadium from Madrid last summer, becoming the club’s record signing at a cost of £42.5m. He made 40 appearances for the London club in all competitions, scoring seven times.
