Ozil Wants To Be The Best

Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil admits that he aims to one day be named the best player in the world, and believes that he has the potential to achieve his goal.

With Barcelona's Lionel Messi widely regarded as the top player in world football - while some believe he is the best ever - Ozil is confident that he can reach the same level.

"Messi is an outstanding player, but I have proven myself in the big games against Barca," he told Bild.

"I am a regular player at the best club in the world. Of course I want to be the best player in the world.

"I have high expectations of myself and am confident that I can fulfil them."

Regarding their poor form in La Liga this season, he added, "We made too many simple errors (in La Liga), especially against smaller teams when we threw away too many points.

"But it is important not to give up. We have a great commitment to Real and the fans in every game, and we also have the Champions League and the cup to compete for.

"We are Real Madrid. We are not afraid of any opposition. We can beat anyone and I think we are now ready for the title."
