“I’ll never regret my decision to join Arsenal” - Ozil

Mon 11 January 2021 | 20:58

The Arsenal midfielder is satisfied with his time with the Gunners despite the difficult past few months he has had.

Mesut Ozil

is confident about the decision he made in 2013 to move to

Arsenal

with a £42.5 million ($57.5m) price tag as he is getting closer to the end of his contract.

He thrived to success in north London, contributing to three FA Cups and a Community Shield as well as receiving the Gunners’ player of the season award in 2015-16.

However, during the past few years, Ozil has not played a crucial role for the club to the point where

Mikel Arteta

kept him out altogether.

Arsenal manager did not play him in this season’s

Premier League

and

Europa League

and the German international is getting prepared to depart sooner rather than later.

Notwithstanding the difficult time he has had in the recent months, Ozil admits he will look back at his memories fondly.

"

Of course,

" he responded in Twitter when asked whether he had a good time at Arsenal. "

There have been many ups and downs so far, but all in all I’ll never regret my decision to join Arsenal. And to be honest, the last couple of games before the corona break in February & March 2020 made [it] really a lot [of] fun.

"I’ve enjoyed that time a lot and I’ve thought we’re really on a very positive way. But after the break things unfortunately changed..."

The 32-year-old has also commented on the time he had with former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger before he was replaced by Unai Emery.

"

Arsene Wenger is a special coach in my career, one that I have total respect for,

" Ozil said. "

He is a great coach with numerous titles. Most of all, he's a great, sincere person

.

"

I associate him with my greatest Arsenal successes. I will always remember that time with him positively."

Ozil has caught the attention of some possible suiters, as he was linked with

Fenerbahce

and some MLS clubs. However, he insisted that he will never play for Gunner’s rivals

Tottenham

.

When he was asked whether he would choose the Spurs or no club at all, he responded: "

Easy question. Retire

!"
