Ozil At Arsenal To Win Trophies

Mesut Ozil says that he has joined Arsenal to win trophies.

He is well aware that the club has failed to win anything since 2005, and that the shiny new trophy cabinet at the Emirates is empty.

But having tasted success at Real Madrid, Ozil thinks that he will be able to help Arsenal win at last.

He thinks that he has joined a side that is capable of realising its silverware ambitions.

"In the last few years, Arsenal haven’t been so successful, but we want to become more successful and we want to win trophies," the German international told Arsenal’s official website.

"I think the fans are looking forward to that too. We have a very strong and a very young team that can improve a lot under the manager.

"I think we will win trophies because we have the potential to do this.”

Meanwhile, Ozil continues to make the most of his unexpected move to the Emirates.

While there is a growing consensus that it was foolhardy for Real Madrid to get rid of Ozil, there is also the belief that he can thrive in Arsenal’s system.

And Ozil himself is looking forward tp growing as a player under Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

"I chose Arsenal because they are one of the top clubs in England," he said.

"The coach is a world-class manager. He has demonstrated that for years. A lot of players have developed under his guidance in the past and that’s why I decided to join Arsenal.

"I want to improve myself further and I’m looking forward to the style of play. Arsenal are well known for the strength of their technical game and their desire to play attacking football. I think I will fit perfectly into that. That’s why I chose to sign for the club.

"Arsenal are one of the technically strongest teams in the world. The manager always wants to play attractive and attacking football. I think I fit into that because I enjoy playing quickly, that ’one-touch football’. I’m happy to be part of the club and I hope I can help the team."
