Özil has been one of Arsenal’s standout performers since completing his club-record move to Emirates Stadium from Spain.
The 24-year-old scored his first goal for the north Londoners in this month’s 2-0 Champions League win over Napoli.
And Özil admits he is full of admiration for the Arsenal manager, whose side are currently top of the Premier League table.
“Arsène Wenger is a super coach and knows exactly what he wants, where he wants to take his team,” said Özil. “If you want to be successful you need that type of coach.”
Özil also revealed that he is enjoying life in London and getting to know his new team-mates.
He continued: “Driving on the left-hand side. I thought it would be much more difficult than it really is. But Per Mertesacker gave me some ‘driving lessons’ and they helped me, so I can drive there.
“London is an interesting city to live in. I have grown to love the place in a short space of time.
“The guys in the Arsenal team and the coaching staff are fully behind me. They have given me great responsibility and that’s what I feel great about.”
