From what a lot of so-called football experts have been saying about this Arsenal star, even this season when he has arguably been better than he was for Real Madrid and Werder Bremen and in the form of his life, you could be forgiven for thinking that Mesut Ozil was struggling to live up to the transfer price the Gunners paid for him.
Arsenal’s superb midfielder Mesut Ozil was looked at with amusement last year when he said that his aim was to win the Ballon D’or one day, especially as he had had a lacksadaisical season with the Gunners and was hardly considered to even be our best player.
Per Mertesacker has been the acting captain of Arsenal in the absence of Mikel Arteta for the last year, and he believes that he brings some organization and planning to the team, making sure everything is in the right place to get the team dynamics working correctly.
The interest from Gunners’ fans this week would have been on how Mesut Ozil fared. The Arsenal playmaker played a vital role as the World Champions Germany won a crucial match against Poland in the Euro 2016 qualifying match.
Even though the Germany international Mesut Ozil came back from his long injury spell to produce his best football for Arsenal since Arsene Wenger surprised us all by smashing the club transfer record to sign him from Real Madrid, it is still fair to say that the jury is still out on our playmaker, both with the Arsenal fans and with the football media in general.
