Arsenal legend Robert Pires believes Mesut Özil can help the club lift the Premier League. The club are without a trophy since their 2005 FA Cup victory but Pires feels Özil’s arrival could change things.
“It’s possible [for Arsenal to win the league] because now the young players have grown up and have more experience.”
“They also have a good mix for Wenger. If you put Özil in the middle, I think it’s a very good mix for Arsenal.”
“He’s a very good player, he players for the German national team, he played for Real Madrid, now he’s playing for Arsenal. He has the experience. I think the football will be more simple now.”
“Seriously, I think Arsenal have a good potential to win the Premiership.”
The Gunners have enjoyed their best start to a season for five years and currently sit top of the league on goal difference. Despite an opening day loss to Aston Villa, the club have won every game since then with Özil assisting four goals in just two league games.
There is still plenty of games left to play but Özil’s influence can go a long way and he may be the missing link that sees Arsenal finally end their long wait for silverware.
