Arsenal legend lavishes praise upon talismanic midfielder

The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern definitely agree with him…

Mesut Ozil has, undoubtedly, been the star of the show for Arsenal so far this season – and the Arsenal fans in the Tavern have proclaimed that he is one of Europe’s finest midfielders.

This is, seemingly, a statement that Arsenal legend Robert Pires agrees with – and in an interview with the official Arsenal website, Pires has lavished praise upon the German maestro.

Pires said: “Mesut has very good qualities…in my time the maestro was Dennis Bergkamp – and now it is Mesut Ozil”

He continued: “I love them both because they play very good football but they play for the team. Not for [themselves], they play for the team.”

The Frenchman also praised Ozil for adding goals to his game, stating: “This is a difference between the last season…when you are in front of the target it is very important to score a goal”.

Very high praise indeed…

The Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have been drawing comparisons between Mesut Ozil and Dennis Bergkamp over the last few weeks – and Ozil’s recent form would certainly seem to suggest that he is on a very similar path to the Arsenal legend.

Bergkamp’s tenure with Arsenal was, of course, far longer than Ozil’s has been thus far – but if the club and Ozil can sort out their contractual issues; the German is well on the way to becoming a club legend like the man himself.
