Mesut Ozil has brushed aside the criticisms allegedly directed towards him from some quarters at Real Madrid.
The German international made a shock deadline move from Madrid to Arsenal, where he has quickly established himself as a star.
After his move, there were allegations that he had begun to enjoy the nightlife in Madrid too much, and that he was somehow less of a model professional than he was when he first joined Los Blancos.
But Ozil has defended himself, insisting that his displays for Madrid, as well as the stats, back up the fact that he was a success at the Bernabeu.
"I had three great years in Madrid and that is all I will say," Ozil said from Germany’s camp ahead of their upcoming World Cup qualifier against Ireland.
"If you look at my statistics and how many games I played there then you can see how professional I was."
Ozil had mentioned that he felt as if he did not have new Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti’s trust.
But he has no such issues with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, which is part of the reason why he has hit the ground running in the English Premier League.
"I feel great in London, the coach gives me the trust, the team is fully behind me and I feel very very well there," he said.
"I can only say that he (Wenger) is a great coach who knows exactly what he wants and has a clear vision. We need a coach like that if we want to be successful.”
