Mesut Özil has spoken about his desire to win the UEFA Champions League with Arsenal.

The 27-year-old went onto say that it is ‘sad’ that a club of Arsenal’s stature hasn’t won the European trophy.

“If you look at history, it’s sad that Arsenal have not so far won the Champions League,” Özil stated in an interview with ​Henry Winter of the Times.

“Arsenal have always had super players. Arsenal have always played nice, attacking football.

“I hope we can win the Champions League title in the future and thank the fans for supporting Arsenal for such a long time. They’ve been waiting for this moment.”

Arsenal came close to winning the Champions League in the 2015-16 season but were defeated in the final by Barcelona.

Özil has provided 16 assists in 17 Premier League games which is more than any other player in England and the top five leagues in Europe including France, Italy, Spain and Germany.

The 27-year-old has won the Arsenal player of the month award for the last two months for the north London club and is expected to win the away for a third consecutive time for December.
