Arsenal boss Wenger: I love Ozil. I just sat back and enjoyed it

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was thrilled with Mesut Ozil's performance in their Champions League win over Napoli.

The 24-year-old joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in the summer for a club record fee of £43million and Wenger hailed the impact he has made.

"Ozil is like the team in that he had an outstanding first half that had everything you want to see from a great player," Wenger said.

"There was individual skill, team play, finishing and final ball. Just sit there and enjoy it.

"I loved him when he was at Madrid, I thought he was great there. We are lucky to have got him.

"He enjoys playing football and enjoys playing with his team-mates - he's integrated very quickly.

"We got so much stick at the start so now I'm cautious, but of course he's given belief to everyone around the club. Belief is part of success in football."
