Ozil: Adoring Arsenal fan’ chants gave me goose bumps

Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil had admitted he had goose bumps at the end of the 4-1 victory over Norwich when he heard fans chanting his name.

Ozil scored twice in the Premier League win which leaves the Gunners sitting pretty at the top of the table.

And he had high praise for his team-mates after watching Jack Wilshere score a wonder goal with Aaron Ramsey also netting a brilliant individual effort.

He said: “It was an emotional experience for me. I had goose bumps when I heard! I’m so thankful to the fans, who have supported both myself and the whole team.

“We’re showing our thanks with our good performances on the pitch. I hope that they can continue to get behind us as they have been and I can guarantee that we will continue to play attractive football.”

Ozil, a £42.5million recruit from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day,

says Wilshere’s goal was like a strike you would in a PlayStation game.

He added: “I’ve got to praise the three players involved for the first goal. It was real ‘tiki taka’ – almost like they were playing PlayStation! It was an unbelievable goal.”

And the Germany playmaker reckons he will get better as the season progresses. He said: “I know that I can still improve but I’m happy with my display and the performance of the team. Aaron Ramsey showed that any player who comes on will do his best for the team and will get involved in tackles and attacks immediately.

“That’s why we’ve been in such good form. I’m really proud of the team. We’re taking what the manager wants us to take into games and are making strides. Now we’ve got another three points and can be pleased with that.

“Confidence is really high. We know what we can do but we won’t get carried away. It’s still very early but we know how much potential we have in the team. We just enjoy playing and it shows on the pitch. We fight for each other and we are always there for one another. That’s why we’ve been so successful.”
