Arsenal's Ozil revelling in heavy English playing schedule

Mesut Ozil admits he is enjoying the hectic playing schedule that comes with English football.

The German playmaker, who joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in the summer, has forever enjoyed a winter break during the season but insists that going from game to game with such regularity is much preferred to the constant training he usually experiences at this time of year.

"I have always had a winter break in previous years but in the Premier League, you play every few days - you don't get a week to relax," Ozil told Arsenal's official website.

"I am very pleased that I am in this league because you go from game to game very quickly.

"You play every two or three days and for me it is better to play more games than train because I love a challenge and here that is perfect."
