Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil should move to Bayern Munich to win trophies, says Ballack

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil Arsenal transfer news

Former Germany international and Chelsea star Michael Ballack has stated that Mesut Ozil will have a better chance of winning trophies if he leaves Arsenal.

The former midfielder told Bild that while Ozil enjoys life in London, a move to the Bundelsiga giants will boost his chances of lifting silverware.

However, Ballack stated that he expects Ozil to extend his contract with the North London based club.

“Mesut Ozil is an outstanding footballer,” Ballack told Bild.

“Many clubs like him. But he knows that he enjoys a very high place at Arsenal. He lives in London, one of the most beautiful cities ever.

“To this end, Arsenal is a club that has an incredible impact on the world. If you are a top player in England, the cult around you is bigger than in Germany. You are treated more respectfully, especially. These are all reasons for an extension.

“But if he could win something big, the chance at Bayern is, in my opinion, bigger.”
