Mesut Ozil believes that he has gained the trust of both Joachim Low, the Germany national team manager, and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

The German is an important member of his national team and joined Arsenal as the club’s most expensive signing last summer for £42.5m.

Ozil believes that he has passed the phase of being just another talented youngster and feels that he is experienced enough to handle greater responsibility.

“I am no longer a talent but an experienced player who has played in three countries”, Ozil told Bild.

“I am ready to take responsibility. I've won three finals, I have been the German Player of the Year for three consecutive years, and I was voted into the team of the year in England by supporters."  


The 25-year-old feels Low and Wenger believe in him and claims that he has done everything in his capacity to gain their trust.

“I feel that Joachim Low and Arsene Wenger trust me, and I have done enough to deserve that.”

Ozil is an important member of the Germany squad that will try to end their country’s 24-year long wait for the World Cup in Brazil this summer.
