Arsenal and German midfielder Mesut Ozil has confirmed to the press that he was annoyed by the fact that Borussia Dortmund defeated Arsenal when both sides played in the champions league group F match day 3 2 weeks ago. Arsenal will be meeting Dortmund again tomorrow knowing full well that they will need a result to stand a chance of making it out of group F either as group leaders or as runner up.
Arsenal have enjoyed a fine start to their champions league campaign but after losing to Dortmund at home the penultimate Tuesday, their chance of making it out of a group that has been tagged as the GROUP OF DEATH now looks doubtful. Up next is Dortmund again, but this time away from home. Ahead of the encounter, Mesut Ozil told Bild :
“There is no sting, but every defeat annoys me. Home defeats especially. And in the Champions League (more) than ever. We were about to turn the game around. But Dortmund have made ??the second goal.”
The high rated German also jokingly said by Dortmund beating Arsenal last week, th German deputy champions should automatically be installed as champions league title favorites.
“Who wins against us, is naturally one of the title favourites. Sure, why not? Dortmund was already a strong team in the past season. And my impression is that they are better than ever!”
Arsenal’s new record signing also made mention of how much he has enjoyed his Arsenal career so far.
“Honestly, Arsenal makes everything fun. The coach, the players, living in London – I feel really comfortable there. And the direct passing of Rosicky is there also…”
