Turkish pundits backing departing Arsenal ace Ozil for Fenerbahce success

Turkey's football experts are confident Mesut Ozil will hit the ground running at Fenerbahce.

The former Germany midfielder is expected in Istanbul today after a pay-off from his Arsenal contract was agreed.

Fanatik's Erman Özgür says, "The most difficult players are those who have a weight problem. Mesut does not have such a problem. Our league will be easy because the pace of our league is lower than Mesut's leagues.

"Everything will become easy by playing matches."

Meanwhile, former Turkey star Nihat Kahveci added: "Mesut does not need to be physically ready. He is a player who plays with the ball on his foot and for the people around him. There is no one-on-one defence in the leagues that Mesut plays: Spain and England.

"A person will be on him when Mesut plays. But they will find a way to help him. He'll find a new freedom in games."
