Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is recently subjected to criticism for not doing well in recent games. He had his worst game in Arsenal colors against Liverpool where two of the goals were scored because of his mistake.
Arsene Wenger came into the defense of his record signing. He believes that Ozil needs to increase his physical strength to cope up with physical premier league gameplay.
“He thinks it’s more physical here (in England) for sure and he is working on his body strength to deal with it,’
“He works on strengthening his body in the gym. Mesut feels the pressure, of course. He knows a lot is expected when you are a big transfer.”
“But he should not worry about that — just play, enjoy it and give his best — that’s the best way to deal with it. But on the other hand, you must say he doesn’t come from a small club.”
“He comes from Real Madrid where the pressure is always huge — so he’s used to it. He needs understanding because he always wants to do well. He cares. He’s not a guy who doesn’t care.”
“His style can sometimes look like that he doesn’t care but he’s really the opposite character.”
