German newspaper Die Welt prised a new interview from new Arsenal acquisition on Sunday, and the German international had used the opportunity to send more positive soudbites to the Gunners whilst also slamming his treatment at Real Madrid.
Ozil talked about how a conversation with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger persuaded him to leave Santiago Bernabeu, saying:
In some way, that conversation flicked a switch in me and made me realise what I had lost at Madrid – transparency, trust, respect.
Arsene told me exactly how he saw me, how he wanted to use me, what he expected of me. I had no control over the transfer fee. I would have even joined Arsenal for free.
Mesut Ozil is expected to get his Arsenal debut in next weekend’s away trip to Sunderland in the Premier League.
Mesut Ozil’s highlights against Austria are below.
