Mesut Ozil has stated that he is happy with the way Arsenal finished the season.

The 27-year-old is pleased that the north London based side have qualified to the UEFA Champions League next season and for finishing above their biter rivals Tottenham.

Spur’s looked set to finish above Arsenal but capitulated against an already-relegated Newcastle United on the last day of the season.

“Firstly, it was important to qualify directly to the Champions League,” Ozil was quoted as saying by the National.

“To be second in the last game of the season and to also be on top of Tottenham was also good for us and good for our fans. It was a good finish to the season.”

The Guners are currently involved in contract negotiations with Ozil however, the 27-year-old is reluctant to commit his future to the point ahead of Euro 2016.

Ozil assisted 19 goals in the league this season, just one short of equalling the Premier League record of 20 set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

The former Real Madrid star has been included in the Germany national team squad which will travel to France this summer.
