Arsene Wenger tips Mesut Özil to make Player of the Year shortlist next season [Video]

After a fantastic start to his Arsenal career, having arrived amid much hype from Real Madrid, Mesut Özil fairly petered out in the second half of the season.

This was down to fatigue and conditioning according to manager Wenger, who conceded Ozil was not entirely prepared for the demands of the Premier League.

But Wenger is tipping Ozil to come back better than ever next season, and to last the pace through the 38+game season, going so far as to tip Ozil to make the shortlist for Player of the Year next time around.
