Arsenal players don't understand me, says Ozil

Published Add your comment

Mesut Ozil has claimed that his Arsenal team mates failed to understand what he was signing during his initiation ceremony.

A long standing tradition at the Emirates sees new signings forced to stand up during dinner and give a rendition of their chosen ballad.

However, although Ozil has shined on the pitch for the Gunners, he failed to impress with his botched karaoke attempt ending in an apology.

The £42.5m signing from Real Madrid put his failure down to the fact that he is no fan of his own voice and believes his new team mates had no idea what he was singing anyway.

He told reporters: "When I sing, I do not like my voice. I do not think my colleagues understood what I sung - but I was glad that that is behind me!" 

His team mates will have since forgiven the 24-year-old as Ozil has got his Arsenal career on the pitch off to a flyer.

Since joining on transfer deadline day, Ozil has assisted four goals and scored one, furthering his reputation as the 'King of Assists'.

Ozil put his success of the pitch down to his cool nature.

He added: "In football I feel generally very little pressure.

"I am doing what I enjoy most and what I do best. I love my work, so I just look forward to every game and do not concern myself so much with what others day or write.

"The pressure that I have, I mainly put on myself because I expect a high level of myself. But with this I can handle pressure very well and hide everything very well."
