The Czech Republic playmaker Tomas Rosicky has heaped praise on his Arsenal teammate Mesut Özil.
The 34-year-old has stated that Özil’s main strength is his intelligence on the pitch. Rosicky went onto say that Özil always picks the right pass at the right time.
“Strength is obviously his brain. He’s exceptionally smart and he picks the right pass at the right moment,” Rosicky told the Mirror.
“He’s very clever, very intelligent and has exceptional technique. That’s what makes him a great player.”
Özil won several personal awards for his form in 2015 including Vitality and PFA Fans player of the month awards.
The 26-year-old wrapped up the season with his second consecutive FA Cup trophy.
The World Cup winner was praised by a number of leading football pundits for his post-injury performances this season including Gary Neville, Kaka and Arsène Wenger.
Rosicky has a year remaining on his contract with the Gunners. The experienced midfielder provided two assists and three goals in 24 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions.
