PREMIER LEAGUE!! Mesut Ozil Finally Speaks On His Relationship With Arsenal Boss Unai Emery
Arsenal playmaker, Mesut Ozil, has said he is “very happy” to be playing under Unai Emery and insists “we have a good relationship”.
Ozil netted his first goal of the season in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Newcastle while earning his 200th appearance for the club.
The German midfielder also voiced his opinion of Emery publicly for the first time, following reports that the two had a fall-out in the lead-up to Arsenal’s game against West Ham, which he missed with an illness.
“I’ve said in the past that I’m very happy to play for Arsenal. The new coach knows what he wants, the team have accepted that and the whole team supports him. We have a good relationship with him and you can see that especially today as well.
“When we score, the whole team is happy, even the players who don’t play so many minutes. You see we are one team that wants to reach our goal. We are happy to take the three points,” Ozil said after the game.
Emery also praised Ozil for his performance on Saturday.
“Today I am happy because I want every player to have chances to score and Mesut scored which is important,” Emery said.
“He continues his process on the team, helping with his quality and working every day to continue with the performance we want.”
