Mesut Ozil has urged the club to sign world class players at the end of the current season. The German believes the club needs to improve ahead of next season as rival clubs including Manchester City who is preparing to welcome Pep Guardiola are set to improve their squad.
With many traditional big teams failing to live up to expectation this season, Ozil believes they will come back fighting next season and we have to prepare ourselves by improving our side.
“We know that it will not be easy and that we need reinforcements if we want next season to be on top here again,” he said.
“It is again interesting to see who invests in who and how much the clubs do during the summer break.
“In addition, great coaches are coming into the league. I am thinking primarily of Pep Guardiola. Wherever he has been, he had success. He is a coach, keen on playing and his teams are feared.
“I wonder what he will do with Man City. He will be imprinting his football in England and people will be surprised.”
Despite sitting 11 points behind league leaders Leicester City, Ozil still believes the club have a chance to win the league title this season.
“I do not think it impossible,” he said for German publication Welt am Sonntag, via football fancast.
“Although there are only a few games left, Leicester have a run against some of the big teams to come.
“We ourselves must in any case not allow any more slip-ups. The hope of the title is still there – we have the players for the title.
“They deserve to be up there -Leicester fight for every point.
“We see in every game that players of Leicester want to achieve something. We ourselves have not been focused in every game, and that is not possible in the Premier League since there is no opponent you can beat easily.
“Leicester have been great, but there are still a few games. I think we still have a chance to catch up Leicester. We must, of course, hope for mistakes.”
