Ozil: I realised what I was missing

Mesut Ozil has once more indicated that a lack of confidence at Real Madrid saw him accept a move to Arsenal this week.

The 24-year-old completed a deadline day transfer from Los Blancos to the Premier League side for an initial €45m fee.

On from yesterday explaining his motives for accepting the deal, the playmaker has reiterated today how Arsenal’s manager helped convince him also.

“After a long telephone conversation with Arsene Wenger, I realised what I was really missing – 100 per cent confidence,” Ozil told today’s edition of Bild.

“Does this move represent a continuation, regression or improvement? Clearly, an improvement. I have never fled and I will never abandon.

“My father and I have made this decision alone.”
