Arsenal playmaker Mesut Özil has stated that the Premier League is the best league in the world.

The 26-year-old has previously played in both the Bundesliga for Werder Bremen and in La Liga for Real Madrid.

Ozil went onto say that he enjoys the challenge and physicality of the league.


“I would recommend any player to come to England. The Premier League is the best league in the world,”  Özil told Bild am Sonntag.

“Here there are not only two teams fighting for the title but three or four and every team can beat any other team.

“The opponents never give up, even if they are 3-0 down. You are challenged all the time, as a player as well as physically.

Özil set up three goals and received a rating of 10.0 from whoscored.com for his performance against Gibraltar in the Euro 2016 qualification game. The Arsenal playmaker made 86 passes and maintained a passing accuracy of 83.7%.

The 26-year-old came under fire at the start of the season and missed three months due to injury but has been in good form since the turn of the year.

The World Cup winner picked up several individual awards and ended the season lifting the FA Cup for the second year running.

Özil will enjoy a short summer break after the international games before returning to North London for pre-season training.
