Ronaldo and Messi may be taking turns to win the most prestigious award in World football -Ballon D’or but this Arsenal star has his eyes set on it.
Mesut Ozil joined Arsenal on the transfer deadline day in summer, 2013 from Real Madrid after a fall out with the Madrid’s management. What he described as a ‘lack of faith’ from them.
His first season at the Emirates was a success as he had stunning figures of 14 assists and 7 goals in 38 games across all competitions,
He was shortlisted in the top five players for the Ballon D’or award, which Christiano Ronaldo eventually won.
He is not resting on his oars and he believes that in the nearest future, he should be able to clinch that prestigious award.
He told Sport Bild, “should I continue to improve myself and stay healthy, I want to get my hands on Ballon D’or in the upcoming years. I am convinced that it can work out. I am headed in the right direction.
“I am a World Champion and play at a top club in the Premier League. It’s far more physical here[England] than in Spain or in the Bundesliga. I constantly have bruises but it only makes me stronger and physically i feel better than ever before.”
Fellow fans, do you think Ozil can achieve this feat or is it merely a lofty dream?
