Mesut Ozil: I Won’t Be Returning To The Bundesliga… The Premier League Is The Strongest In The World And I’m Happy Here

Mesut Ozil played an integral role in an impressive Arsenal performance against Monaco in the Champions League last night.

So, while Arsene Wenger’s side will be disappointed that they could not score enough goals to progress to the next stage, there were lots of positives for the Gunners.

And Ozil, who was previously linked with a move to Bayern Munich, admits that he is happy in England, despite his club’s European exit.

Ozil told the Express:

A return to Germany is not an option for me right now. I am really happy at Arsenal and I want this to continue.

I played in the Bundesliga and at Real Madrid. But the English Premier League is the strongest league in the world. Opponents never give up.

Even if we’re 3-0 in front with Arsenal, the players never give up and fight until the very last second.

You can only succeed here when you’re on top-level physically.

The World Cup winner also took the opportunity to hit back at those who have criticised his performances, insisting he still wants to improve:

I don’t need to prove them anything. But it is correct that I have to work harder to reach my goals.

That’s why I’m working as hard as I never worked before in my life. My body is more stable and I feel fresher. You need that in England.
