Mesut Ozil: I had goosebumps on my Arsenal home debut
Arsenal's Mesut Özil says he had goosebumps when he made his Emirates Stadium debut in September
Mesut Ozil says he has been stunned by the passion of supporters in England and admits he had goosebumps when he made his home debut for Arsenal.
The 25-year-old has settled into life in the Premier League in style since his arrival from Real Madrid in the summer, scoring four goals and making seven assists in the English top flight.
Ozil set up two goals in a man-of-the-match display in the 3-1 win over Stoke in his first appearance at Emirates Stadium back in September.
I think the best feeling I had was when I made my Emirates Stadium debut
And the Germany international has been impressed by the crowds at English grounds since moving to the north London club.
“This positive attitude [is surprising], also from opposition fans,” Ozil told Arsenal Player.
“They are never really unfair, they are always respectful even if it’s a derby. You see that they have fun watching – they live for football and give the team unbelievable support.
“There is always a really nice atmosphere. I think the best feeling I had was when I made my Emirates Stadium debut. The atmosphere was unbelievable and I had goosebumps.”
