Ozil feeling the faith from Wenger

first_img The 24-year-old Germany international completed a club-record transfer from Real Madrid late on Monday evening for a fee believed to be £43million. Ozil revealed once it was clear he no longer figured in the first-team plans of Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti following the world-record signing of Gareth Bale from Tottenham, that he had no hesitation in moving on to a fresh challenge at Arsenal, where he is set to become an integral part of Wenger’s team alongside Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla. Wenger’s squad responded well since they lost the opening Barclays Premier League game at home to Aston Villa, first winning at Fulham and then securing a place in the group stages of the Champions League by beating Fenerbahce both at home and away before beating their fierce rivals. However, the need for getting extra bodies in was highlighted by the inclusion of youngsters Serge Gnabry and Gedion Zelalem, both only 16, on the bench after Arsenal’s first-team squad had been decimated by injuries to key men like Lukas Podolski, Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Arsenal, however, had been keen to bring in some more offensive cover and looked at a loan deal for Chelsea forward Demba Ba, but the Stamford Bridge club were not interested in reaching such an agreement with their rivals. The arrival of the third-generation Turkish-German playmaker Ozil comes in a deal worth the best part of £200,000-per-week at nearly treble the previous record transfer fee paid for Andrey Arshavin to Zenit St Petersburg in January 2009. Wenger had long championed the need for a wage structure which kept a sense of parity within the dressing room. Although that was pushed by the arrival of Germany forward Podolski last summer and also by the new contract given to England winger Walcott, while chief executive Ivan Gazidis claimed at the end of last season enough funds were available to meet such super-star salaries on top of a massive transfer fee. Indeed, Arsenal had already freed up millions in wages by offloading many fringe players earlier in the summer, including Arshavin. However, Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner remains on the payroll – at a reported weekly bill of £52,000 – after a proposed switch to Crystal Palace failed to materialise because, due to the non-starter with Ba, there was no time for Arsenal to draft in a replacement. Press Association New Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has no doubts he can take his game to a whole new level at the Emirates Stadium to repay the faith of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger. However, the German’s arrival could pose problems for Wenger because of the effect of his salary on the club’s wage structure. Speaking to the German Football Association’s official website,, Ozil said: “At the weekend, I was certain that I would stay at Real Madrid, but afterwards I realised that I did not have the faith from the coach or the bosses. I am a player who needs this faith and that is what I have felt from Arsenal, which is why I have joined. “I am really looking forward to it because I have the faith of the coach. I had spoken to him at length on the telephone, he explained his plans and that he has faith in me – that is what I need as a player. “I am looking forward to the new challenge there (Arsenal). I have already heard that they have super fans, the city is great and the team is fantastic. “Wenger gives me the faith and I can develop further. I know what I can do and I know that I could make the grade with any club in the world because I am so convinced in myself, but if I don’t feel people have faith in me, then that is why I had to leave and at Arsenal, I feel I have this fully. “I am sure the new coach is going to develop me further and I am also really looking forward to playing in the Premier League.” Ozil completed the terms of his transfer while away on international duty with Germany in Munich ahead of their World Cup qualifier with Austria, as Wenger finally delivered a marquee signing – and a player he had tracked ever since he impressed at Werder Bremen. Before Sunday’s 1-0 win over big-spending Tottenham, Wenger had seen moves for Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez and Yohan Cabaye all fail to materialise, and only secured the free transfers of Yaya Sanogo and Mathieu Flamini, before a loan move for Palermo goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano was completed on deadline day. last_img read more

“It doesn’t affect me that four fools mess with me because of my color”

first_imgAfter the meeting, Williams attended the media and talked about the support samples of Heliodoro and the qualification for the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey: Heliodoro Rodríguez López roared against racism and violence on Tuesday during the round of 16 match of the Copa del Rey between CD Tenerife and Athletic Club, in support of Bilbao striker Iñaki Williams for the racist chants he suffered last weekend at RCD Stadium. It has been a beautiful story with Heliodoro.“They did not have to do it, they feel identified with me. It has been very emotional that they remembered me, there are many invisible people who suffer racism and it is a good cause to claim. I keep it in my heart.”They have already identified the twelve who shouted at him“There have to be tougher penalties, which make them think twice if they shout again at a Chinese player, black, Moroccan or whatever color. You have to go enjoy football.”What did you think of Cornellà? Has it affected you?“It doesn’t affect me that four fools try to mess with someone because of the color of their skin. It affects me more than no remedy, but they do it.”In the sporting aspect, they had a bad time.“It was very complicated. We came knowing that things were going to make us very complicated; we have not given up. Suffering we have managed to pass.”The master squeezed him asking for more as a franchise player.“We have a very close relationship. He is always insisting on the importance I should have for the team. Being alive in the Cup was what we all wanted.”By saying that he is a franchise player, he puts him in the first ranking. Does it weigh you?“It does not weigh me, I am aware of the importance I have for Athletic and I have to prove it in the field. I have to believe myself more that I am the goal man. If I have chances, I will end up getting them.”They showed pride.“If you leave the lion with strength, it can vaccinate you. We knew that after the expulsion we had to make them a long game, we have a superior physique.”How have you lived the batch?“I have the luck of my 25 years and the potato is doing well. I have suffered a lot. When you are out you suffer twice as much, everyone has put it less Iñigo.”How is everything you demand?“Very well because I am the first to demand that he goes home when the goals do not arrive. I do not get tired of working and trying to improve. When people ask me for more, I try to score goals.”They are with the arrow up …“We are confident that we can go far; the format is attractive.”In relation to this matter, the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, said Tuesday that they have not “fulfilled” their “responsibility” after the racist insults the Athletic player received. “LaLiga as the organizer of the championship is responsible for the safety of the fan and this weekend we cannot say that we have fulfilled our responsibility, so we have to do self-criticism and reflect. We are worried about finding solutions,” said Tebas during the fifth Gala of the awards of the Association of the Sports Press of Madrid (APDM). Before the start of the meeting, the main animation group at Heliodoro Rodríguez López, stressed that they would support Williams “as a symbol of the fight against racism, which sooner or later has to disappear” from the stands and from society. A special night.“I have ended up busted, they had to put me a chair. I want to remember all the love I have received these days, they have behaved ten. It is what we need, good people, with people like that we will end racism.One more potter goes away. Let’s punch racism. They take a faithful follower, hopefully see you soon in First. My mother had a hard time, I did not understand how today I could suffer such things when she has not suffered in her life. Since the players jumped on the grass before the start of match, a banner could be seen in the stands where the message was read “no to racism” and “no to violence”. Also ‘Iñaki zurekin gaude’ (Iñaki, we are contigor). The same banner was shown during the nineth minute of the match, which coincides with the number on his shirt, the Athletic striker. In the meantime, All Athletic players jumped into the field with the Williams shirt. In the ninth minute of meeting, in addition, as it had been promoted through social networks there were songs against racism and support Williams, which was part of the initial eleven.These initiatives were promoted by animation groups organized and by fans individually during the last days, after the Bilbao player denounced that he suffered “racist insults” during the game he faced the rojiblanco team this Saturday with Espanyol at the RCDE Stadium corresponding to the twentieth first day of LaLiga Santander.last_img read more
