Arsenal central defender Laurent Koscielny has heaped praise on his teammate Mesut Ozil ahead of the club’s upcoming fixture against Liverpool.
As quoted by the Daily Mail, the former France international waxed lyrical about Ozil’s recent performance against Leicester City in the Premier League and hailed him as an ‘unstoppable’ force when he is in form.
Unai Emery has recently awarded Ozil the captain’s armband, with the ex-Germany star featuring at the forefront of the Spaniard’s plans at the club this season.
Emery is likely to call on Ozil to provide the Gunners with a creative edge on Saturday evening as they gear up for a blockbuster clash against Liverpool in the top-flight.
Koscielny, who has not featured for Arsenal since sustaining a long-term injury against Atletico Madrid towards the end of last season, reserved plenty of praise for Ozil.
The experienced central defender said:
When Mesut is in this form, he is unstoppable and makes us win. He has extraordinary qualities.There are not many players like him in the world right now capable of producing a pass the like for Hector [Bellerin against Leicester], beating four opposition players with just one ball.
However, he needs to be at this level as much as possible this season. Great players are the ones playing at their best the whole season.
