Mesut Ozil: Why I’m so happy in London with Arsenal
Mesut Ozil insists that he is feeling completely comfortable in London with Arsenal
Mesut Ozil has stressed the importance of feeling comfortable in London and insists that he loves living in the English capital.
The Germany playmaker has been in good form for Arsenal in recent weeks after missing three months of the season with a knee injury.
Ozil, who joined Arsenal in a club-record £42.5m deal from Real Madrid back in 2013, has scored four goals and made five assists in 16 Premier League games so far this season.
And the 26-year-old World Cup winner says that he feels completely at home in London following his transfer from Spain two years ago.
Ozil is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “I am really happy living in London – it has a real charm about it.
“The city is really multicultural. There’s always something to do compared to, say, Germany where most places are shut on Sunday.
“In Madrid, everything was shut at midday because of the siesta, but in London everywhere is open 24/7.”
Ozil will be expecting to feature when Arsenal take on Reading in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley on Saturday.
The midfielder played the full 90 minutes as Arsene Wenger’s men sealed a 1-0 win at Burnley last weekend to stay second in the Premier League table.
