Mesut Ozil has voiced his admiration for Arsene
Wenger and has revealed that the Frenchman's
presence played a huge role in his decision to leave
Real Madrid for Arsenal back in 2013.

The Gunners parted with £42.5 million to acquire
the Germany international, with Ozil becoming a key
figure at the Emirates Stadium following his move.
And Ozil has now stressed that Wenger has been
key to his fine form in recent months.

"He knows exactly how I tick and I know exactly
what he thinks of me. Sometimes things work better
than at other times, that's football, but the manager
believes in me and that means a lot to me," Ozil told
the official Arsenal website.

"He has experience and in past years you’ve seen
him develop some top players. I get on really well
with him and he gives me his trust. I’m thankful to
him for that and to be praised by a coach like him
means a lot.
"I thank him for that through good performances on
the pitch.

"Before I joined, I knew that Arsenal were always a
technically-strong team. That's also why I decided
to join this club, because I know exactly what the
manager wants from the team.

"Our game centres around playing good, technical
football and that’s good. It's thanks to the manager
because he's worked on that for years and has
formulated a technically-gifted team that can
dominate any opposition.

"That's why we're really pleased to have a manager
like him."

Ozil is yet to score in four Premier League
appearances this campaign, but has two assists to
his name so far.
