Ozil revealed a breakdown in his relationship with Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti sparked his move to north London.
"It is very important for me that the coach shows faith in me and believes in me," Ozil told TF1.
"I had no doubt that I would stay at Real Madrid when last season came to an end. But then something happened and I no longer had the coach's trust.
"At Arsenal on the other hand, I feel the exact opposite."
