Including Mesut Ozil. Yes, the German midfielder is now often relied upon Arsenal after being ignored. Obviously Ozil was pleased with Arteta’s presence at the Emirates Stadium. In fact, he did not hesitate to mention that Arteta is the right figure for Arsenal compared to Unai Emery who was previously hailed could raise club achievements.

“Actually, this brings us back to how the old system was implemented. Fight and have ball control, control the game, have the ball every time. It’s something like this that he is working on with us and you can see “all the players seemed to smile, laugh and enjoy this moment – this made us successful. I think he is the right person for the club,” told Ozil to the Sun.

Furthermore, this Turkish bloody player sees Arteta as a hungry, but not ambitious, figure, he is also very humble.

“He can show us everything he has learned in his long career. He knew exactly what we needed. He knew what to say to us, how to give a positive attitude and make us successful. I can see he is very hungry, but at the same time also humble, “he concluded.
