Reports are out claiming that Mesut Ozil says he was proud of his season with Arsenal.
The midfielder produced some of the best football of his career this campaign.
He told the German FA website: “I’m proud that I helped the team do well this term and claiming the award just shows that the fans value my efforts. It’s nice to receive credit for it. However, I wouldn’t have been able to win it without the help of my teammates and colleagues.
“My first year was tough at times and then the second one was injury hit. I was able to complete a full pre-season this time around and that certainly helped me perform as well as I did this term.”
Ozil added: “There’s not much I’d change about last term. I was fit, played well in a lot of games and was consistent. That’s the main thing as far as I’m concerned.”
