Published Add your comment

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has given his thoughts on his teammates after taking part in a light-hearted question and answer session with Gunners fans via the club's official Twitter account on Thursday.

German playmaker Ozil, who became the club's record signing after completing a £42.5 million move from Spanish giants Real Madrid on transfer deadline day, has instantly become a firm fans favourite at the Emirates Stadium after expertly showcasing his considerable quality during his first three appearances for Arsenal. 

Taking time out to engage with fans online, former Werder Bremen man Ozil enhanced his reputation by giving refreshing honest answers to a number of rather testing queries.

When asked who was the biggest joker among the playing squad in North London, Ozil replied: "@Podolski10! He is always having fun and makes people laugh."

As well as revealing that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger speaks German and French defender Bacary Sagna is the best singer, Ozil also took time to praise the Arsenal fans and spoke of his affection for London.

"They (Arsenal fans) have been very positive and I know they have a lot of support for me. The city (London) is unbelievable, it's really nice. There is so much to do here," he said.

Ozil, who has already won 49 senior caps for his country, claimed that former Real teammate Cristiano Ronaldo was the most complete player in the world and that Spanish defender Sergio Ramos was the second-best player he had ever featured alongside.

When asked who among his new teammates has impressed him the most, an admirably diplomatic Ozil replied: "I don't just want to say one player, I am surprised by the technical quality of the whole team."

Arsenal, who progressed to the fourth round of the Capital One Cup following a penalty shootout victory against West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday evening, return to Premier League action on Saturday with a trip to face Michael Laudrup's Swansea City.
