Former Arsenal forward Charlie Nicholas has hailed Mesut Ozil following his sublime goal against Ludogorets on Tuesday.
Ozil has been in fine form this season scoring six goals in as many games prior to the game against the Bulgaria club.
The goal against Ludogorets was his seventh of the season and it was as beautiful as anything you can find in football. The goal confirmed Arsenal’s place in this season’s Uefa Champions League round of 16 and Nicholas has hailed the midfielder for single-handedly carrying the Gunners through to the next round, claiming he comes from another planet.
“Ozil was just different class.” Nicholas told Sky Sports in his post-match analysis of the game.
“He comes from another planet that no other Arsenal player has found yet.
“He’s got loads of good talent and loads of good movement. “Ozil was absolutely wonderful.”
Ozil is arguably in the form of his life having scored his first career hat-trick a fortnight ago in the first leg encounter against the same Ludogorets.
The midfielder has always been amongst the best midfielders in the world and what has been missing in his game was his goals. Now that he has started finding the back of the net, he is looking a class above everyone else. Should he continue to perform like this, Arsenal will have a big chance of winning a major title. While we are hoping he leads us to the Premier League title, we wouldn’t mind if he helps us win the Champions League title.
