Henrikh Mkhitaryan: Why I Admire Mesut Ozil
New Arsenal signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan has explained why he looks up to new teammate Mesut Ozil.
The former Manchester United star, who recently joined the Gunners in a swap deal involving himself and Alexis Sanchez, is excited to link up with Ozil, a player whose intelligence he has praised.
"Here at Arsenal, I know that lots of players move a lot and it's incredible the way (the team) plays. I will do my best to assist them as well," he said via Arsenal's official website.
"I think it will be really fun to play alongside Ozil. Everyone knows he's a fantastic player, he's an assist king! I look forward to it.
"(I admire) his intelligence, the way that he can understand the game, reads the game, plus the way he gives pace to the game and, of course, his final decision."
Ozil has made 19 appearance so far for the North London club this season, scoring four goals and assisting a further six strikes.
