Ozil is very happy to play under Unai emery

The German maestro has responded to recent reports about his relationship with Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil says he’s “very happy” to play under Unai Emery and insists “we have a good relationship.”

Ozil netted his first goal of the season in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Newcastle in what was arguably his best performance of the campaign as well, in his 200th appearance for the club.

The German midfielder also voiced his opinion of Emery publicly for the first time, following reports that the two had a fall-out in the lead-up to Arsenal’s game against West Ham, which he missed with an illness.

“I’ve said in the past that I’m very happy to play for Arsenal. The new coach knows what he wants, the team have accepted that and the whole team supports him. We have a good relationship with him and you can see that especially today as well,” Ozil said after the game. “When we score, the whole team is happy, even the players who don’t play so many minutes. You see we are one team that wants to reach our goal. We are happy to take the three points.”

Emery also praised Ozil for his performance on Saturday.

“Today I am happy because I want every player to have chances to score and Mesut scored which is important,” Emery said. “He continues his process on the team, helping with his quality and working every day to continue with the performance we want.”
