Unai Emery has revealed he is ‘very happy’ with how Mesut Ozil has responded to his demand for the Arsenal midfielder to become more consistent.
Ozil, fans’ favorite and one of the best midfielders in the Premier League found himself out of favor following the arrival of Emery at the Emirates.
During the Christmas period, Ozil made just one appearance out of seven games for the Gunners with Emery calling for the midfielder to give more effort in training.
And now the German seems to have gradually worked himself back into the first team, as he has appeared in Arsenal’s last five league matches, making three starts out of four.
“Yes. He is working very well, he is playing well and he is helping us. I am very happy with him,” replied Emery when asked if Ozil is working harder.
“I think now in the team we have a good atmosphere and good spirit. Each player is helping us with his quality and with good behaviour.”
