Manchester United and former England defender Rio Ferdinand has confirmed Arsenal’s signing of Mesut Ozil has made the gunners a team that can not be discounted in title race.
Rio Ferdinand while talking to mail on Sunday confirmed that Arsenal have got a top quality player in Ozil.
He told the Mail on Sunday: “As a player you don’t want it to be wide open. We want to win the title by 20 points every year. What happened last season, I’d take that every time.
“For the punters, yeah, it’s going to be much more exciting and when I retire I’d love it to be like that every year, lots of teams in close competition until the last few days of the season. But as a player you want the games won and things wrapped up as soon as possible.
“Teams have invested in their squads and it will be tight. It’s too early to judge who’s going to be there at the end but we’ll have an idea just after Christmas.”
