EPL: They deserve it – Ozil predicts club to win title this season


Former Real Madrid playmaker, Mesut Ozil, has backed Arsenal to win the Premier League title this season.

Ozil, a former Arsenal player, said the Gunners deserved to win the Premier League title.

The former Germany international, who recently announced his retirement from football, told MARCA: “The first years were very good. We played in the Champions League, we had a great team with great players and an incredible coach like Arsene Wenger. After he [Wenger] left the club, many things changed for me.

“I’ve no interest in adding fuel to the fire again. Now I’m relaxed, and I wish the best to the Arsenal fans, who have always been very supportive of me.

“I would be happy for them if they could celebrate the Premier League title. They deserve it!”

Arsenal currently sit eight points clear on top of the Premier League table ahead of second position Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
