Mesut Özil - I love playing in England already
—“Of course it’s out of the ordinary because I’ve always had a winter break in previous years,” he told Arsenal Player. “In the Premier League, you play every few days - you don’t get a week to relax.
—“I’m very pleased that I’m in this league because you go from game to game very quickly. You play every two or three days and for me it’s better to play more games than train because I love a challenge and here that is perfect.
“I feel comfortable here. You can see on the pitch when we play together that we have a very good understanding.
—“The team is great and for me it’s been very easy to settle - the German players here have helped me to establish myself quicker than I perhaps would have done were they not here.
—“But ultimately I feel pleased. The people are very friendly and welcoming.”
