Ozil impressed by Wenger

Mesut Ozil has backed Arsene Wenger to bring long-awaited success to Arsenal after seeing his work at close hand.

Wenger pulled off something of a coup during the summer when he managed to prise 24-year-old Ozil away from Real Madrid with a £43million bid.

The Germany international has been an instant hit at the Emirates Stadium and has played his part in a flying start to the new campaign by the Gunners, and he is convinced the Frenchman can bring tangible success back to the club.

Ozil said: "He's a super coach. He knows exactly what he wants, he has very definite ideas about where he wants to take his team.

"If we want to be successful, we need that kind of coach."
