Olivier Giroud hails Ozil understanding

Published Add your comment

Arsenal star Olivier Giroud believes he has a great relationship with Mesut Ozil. 

The pair were both on the scoresheet last night as Arsenal beat Napoli 2-0 at the Emirates and Giroud has heaped praise on the German international.

Ozil, who opened the scoring with a fine finish, then turned creator as he setup Giroud for the Gunners' second of the night. 

And, after last night's victory, Giroud told reporters: "Mesut was unbelievable tonight, as usual.

"It is really simple to find him on the pitch and we have a really good understanding on the pitch. He assisted on my goal and he always does the right thing in the right moment.

"This is his fifth assist since he joined us and I think he was the man we needed to really improve ourselves. He has incredible technique and he did very well tonight.

"His goal is quite difficult to score because he was far [from the goal], he had really good precision in his shot.

Giroud has also stated that he has a similar understanding with other players in the Arsenal side. 

He continued by saying: "I have the same [understanding] with Jack and Tomas and Aaron and Theo as well so I'm really pleased to play with these kinds of players."

Arsene Wenger's side have made a great start to their European campaign with two wins from their opening two group stage fixtures. The north London outfit have a double head-to-head against last year's finalists Borussia Dortmund next.

However, the Gunners' immediate focus will turn to the Premier League as they travel to the Hawthorns to take on a West Brom side that beat Manchester United in their last outing.
