Ozil Hails Former Teammate As One Of The Greatest Ever

Ozil scored the winning goal for Arsenal as they beat Newcastle 2-1 in their recent Premier League fixture, which also was their 3rd consecutive victory.

Before Ozil joined Arsenal in 2013, he was a Real Madrid player who took Spain by storm. He was a midfield enforcer for Real Madrid and racked and ruined the oppositions with his pinpoint crosses that Real Madrid attackers capitalized on. Ozil, who now wears the No.10 jersey for Arsenal, has termed Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the greatest footballers to have ever lived. Mesut Ozil delivered numerous assists for Cristiano Ronaldo while he was at Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo is always famous for his hard work and commitment. Ozil says he has never seen a person like Cristiano. He said, “People always ask me about is what it was like to play with Cristiano Ronaldo and all I can say is that I’ve never seen a person like him. He works really hard and is the first guy to get into the training ground, then the last one to leave. He’s very professional and always wants to win, even in the training games. Of course I was looking at what he was doing, even something as simple as just looking at his shooting technique.”

“I really enjoyed playing with him because he made me better on the pitch and he’s a great guy off it, too. I gave him loads of assists and he doesn’t need me to remind him of that! It was easy to play with him because you didn’t need to create a lot of chances. Even if I just gave him two passes, he would score two goals and that’s why he’s one of the greatest footballers who’s ever lived.” Ozil added.

Arsenal have now won three Premier League games so far this season. Mesut Ozil will be looking to continue performing as he did against Newcastle for Arsenal. Unai Emery’s side will next face Vorskla in their first Europa game this season, and Ozil will be planning to inspire Arsenal to another victory.

Author’s Take

There is no surprise that Mesut Ozil has termed Cristiano as one of the greatest footballers to have ever played the beautiful game. When the German star played for Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo was in red-hot form for Real Madrid. Ozil was also a part of the 2011-12 La Liga winning Real Madrid squad. While playing for Real Madrid, he established himself as one of the greatest midfielders and assist providers of this beautiful game.
