Mesut Ozil says “there have been many ups and downs” at the club but that he does not “regret” joining the Gunners.
The ex-Germany international has not played for Arsenal since March 7.
During a social media question and answer session he had this to say:
“I grew up as a Fenerbahce fan as a kid in Germany.”
“Every German-Turkish person supports a Turkish team when they grow up in Germany. And mine was Fenerbahce.
“Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country.”
“There are two countries I want to play football in before I retire: Turkey and USA. If I went to Turkey, I could only go to Fenerbahce.”
When asked if he had ever enjoyed playing for Arsenal, Ozil replied: “Of course.
“There have been many ups and downs so far, but all in all I’ve never regretted my decision to join Arsenal.
“And, to be honest, the last couple of games before the corona break in February and March 2020 made really a lot [of] fun.
“But after the break things unfortunately changed.”
