MESUT OZIL INTERVIEW

MESUT OZIL INTERVIEW

The Arsenal and Germany ace chats superstitions, assists, cars and more! 

OZIL ON... THE PREMIER LEAGUE


MESUT SAYS: “The Premier League is a lot faster and a lot more physical than the Bundesliga. You don’t have as much time on the ball, so you need to make early decisions. It’s one of the best leagues in the world, and to boss the game on a stage like this you need to be on top form every week!”

OZIL ON... SUPERSTITIONS


MESUT SAYS: “I always have the same ritual before every game. I only make knots with the laces, instead of tying them in the normal way, and then tuck them in. If you tie your laces in the traditional way, it can be harder to control the ball because the surface isn’t flat!”

OZIL ON... ASSISTS


MESUT SAYS: “It’s a really great feeling knowing I’m contributing to the team. It’s easy to boss the game when you’re playing with so many top-class players, and my target now is to break the record for the most assists in a Premier League season!”

OZIL ON... MOTORS


MESUT SAYS: “I’m a big lover of cars, and it’s one of the few things I enjoy spending my money on. Right now you’ll find me behind the wheel of a Mercedes G-Class. It’s a really awesome car!”

OZIL ON... OFF THE PITCH


MESUT SAYS: “Football is my main focus, which is a lot of fun and I love to be on the pitch. But I have other interests, like fashion, trainers and being with my family. I take pride in my appearance, too. Footballers like to take care of themselves and pay attention to what clothes they wear!”

OZIL ON... MUSIC


MESUT SAYS: “I listen to music before every match to get myself psyched up, and right now I’m really into hip-hop – it’s a genre full of incredible performers. If I could choose my ideal gig, it would be kicked off by Kanye West – who’s my favourite artist – followed by Wiz Khalifa and finished by Drake!”

OZIL ON... HIS CAREER HIGHLIGHT


MESUT SAYS: “That’s difficult! Winning two FA Cups with Arsenal has been fantastic, but the biggest highlight of all has to be lifting the World Cup with Germany. There was real expectation around us but we delivered, including a huge performance against Brazil. It was incredible to walk off the pitch knowing the world would be talking about that game for a long time!”
