Arsenal star Theo Walcott: Mesut Ozil makes football look easy

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has moved to show his support for under-fire playmaker Mesut Ozil, lavishing the World Cup winner with praise ahead of this weekend’s clash with Man United.

The 26-year-old England international has been in impressive form for both club and country this season, forcing out Olivier Giroud to become Arsene Wenger’s first-choice central striking option.

Walcott has bagged four goals in five starts in all competitions this season and has credited Ozil for his help providing the ammunition.

“He can do it anywhere on the pitch, he’s a threat from anywhere,”

“Mesut’s involvement in the Stoke goal sums it up and also shows what he can do for this team. He makes football look easy and he’s a special player.”

“When you’ve got that in your dressing room you can build on it. The first thing he does when he has the ball, in fact when he hasn’t even got the ball, is that he looks.

“He looks first before he gets the ball and he knows where he’s going to play it before he’s even got it. That just shows the sort of quality we have in this team.

“I know what he’s going to do now when he’s got the ball, I just need to keep making those runs and hopefully we can get that relationship going.” Walcott added, according to quotes covered by
