Arsenal defender Mertesacker: I now feel comfortable here

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker is happy with his first season in England.

As he recovers from an ankle injury that has sidelined him since February, the 27-year-old admits that the initial transition was difficult.

"Sometimes I felt like it was very hard, especially when I first came here," Mertesacker told Arsenal Player.

"It was tough to settle down [and I was] very quickly into the first squad. There was sometimes a lack of performance but I think you have to go through that to improve yourself.

"I am very comfortable here now, and very proud to be with this Club."
