Lukas Podolski could not contain his excitement with the announcement of Mesut Ozil’s move to Arsenal. He claims that he will join forces with the new arrival to ‘rock’ Arsenal.
Ozil, Arsenal’s record signing, has been praised by former team mates, opponents and fans and is still racking up the accolades from his new colleagues. Podolski is the latest player to speak out about the talented playmaker, insisting they will click together well for Arsenal.
“Mesut and I are going to rock Arsenal. It’s great that he’s coming – he’s a good friend and a brilliant footballer.”
The duo have forged a great partnership at international level and Podolski is relishing taking that connection to club level but will have to wait until Christmas with the former Cologne star out injured with a severe hamstring injury.
The 28-year old feels Ozil can take Arsenal to the next level and help the team end their long wait for a trophy.
“He’s a great fit for us. We’re already playing great football; the only thing that was missing was the final punch, that element of surprise. That’s exactly what Mesut will give us.”
“It’s extremely said, I would have liked to have played with Mesut straight away, not watched him from the stands. But I can’t change that, I can’t sew the muscle
back together again.”
Ozil rejected offers from Manchester United and PSG to seal the move to Arsenal.
