Arsenal's record signing Mesut Ozil believes Cristiano Ronaldo is the most complete footballer in the world.

When asked whether he preferred Ronaldo or Barcelona star Lionel Messi, Ozil selected his former Real Madrid teammate.

Speaking to Arsenal's official website, Ozil said: "Ronaldo because he is the most complete player in the world - and I have played with him of course!"

Ozil played alongside Ronaldo at the Bernabeu for three years - and the pair struck up a fine relationship on the pitch.

Indeed, when Ozil completed his surprise £42m move to the Emirates Stadium this summer, Ronaldo was reportedly angered by Real Madrid's decision to sell the German assist-king.

“The sale of Ozil is very bad news for me," Spanish newspaper AS reported Ronaldo as telling his Portugal teammates. “He was the player who best knew my moves in front of goal... I'm angry about Özil leaving.”

Ozil has enjoyed a fine start to his Gunners career, contributing four assists in his opening two Premier League matches.

Arsenal, with Ozil in their ranks, currently sit top of the Premier League table.
