Mesut Ozil issues Arsenal rallying cry ahead of Man City clash
Mesut Özil takes to his Facebook page to issue a rallying cry ahead of Arsenal's showdown with Manchester City
Mesut Ozil took to his official Facebook page on Friday to post a pre-match message ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Manchester City on Saturday.
The playmaker did not feature for Germany during the international break due to injury but is fit and ready for the visit of the defending champions.
Ozil revealed his delight at the club’s signing of Danny Welbeck from Manchester United after Olivier Giroud’s injury, and also looked ahead to the coming weeks.
He wrote: “Dear fans, After the international break last weekend the Premier League continues and the current champions Manchester City await us in the domestic Emirates Stadium.
Together with our coach Arsene Wenger, we can achieve success
“Last season I didn’t lose a home game with Arsenal in the #bpl – which I hope to continue. We can also go into the game with self-confidence thanks to the victory in the Community Shield before the start of the season.
“After the injury of Olivier it was important that we were able to win again with the offensive quality of Danny. In a few weeks, we hope that Theo [Walcott] can help us with his speed once more. There is not much time to train as many of us had a long World Cup and most of my team-mates were on the road again representing their national teams.
“I was previously injured and in the upcoming weeks there will be many national and international games taking place.
“In the games to come, it is very important for us to find a good way to maintain our winning streak. In order to achieve this we must get the running and passing lines of new players as perfectly coherent as possible!
“I believe we have a great team spirit and together with our coach Arsene Wenger, we can achieve success. COME ON YOU GUNNERS!”
