Arsenal midfielder Ozil: I had hard time with Emery

Mesut Ozil admits he feels better about life at Arsenal under manager Mikel Arteta.

Ozil insists things are different compared to former boss Unai Emery.

Ozil said: “I had a hard time, especially with the previous coach Unai Emery, but now everything has changed, and I am very happy with everything. I play regularly and everything goes well.

“Arteta, as I said in my previous interviews, it was surprising to many people that he adopted the club in such a short time. He's doing a good job. He's hungry for success.

“Everything about him is positive. Arteta's story is a bit different because I don't remember when she quit football, but it hasn't been over that long. In this way, players can understand more easily."
