Shkodran Mustafi has revealed the six qualities that make his Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil such a special player after recent performances.
The defender listed Ozil’s skills, vision, intelligence, quality, calmness and ability to score goals as what make him such a good player.
“He has so much quality but the most important thing is that he is willing to show it on the pitch,” said Mustafi, as reported by the Evening Standard.
“He stays cool, he has the calmness and finishes off brilliantly. He has the skills, vision, intelligence, quality. Mesut’s left foot can play every pass he wants.”
Ozil grabbed the most assists in the Premier League last season (19) but has been more prolific in front of goal this season, netting seven in 14 appearances in the league and the Champions League.
He scored his first ever career hat-trick during Arsenal’s 6-0 routing against Ludogorets in the Champions League last month and scored a sensational goal most recently against the Bulgarian side in their late 3-2 victory.
The 28 year-old has been in sensational form as his Arsenal team currently sit in fourth place, just two points off Premier League leaders, Liverpool.
Mustafi joined Arsenal this summer after he was signed for £35 million from Valencia and has gone on to make eight league appearances so far this season.
