Alexis Sanchez has revealed Mesut Ozil is the Arsenal player he enjoys playing with the most.
Sanchez and Ozil have struck a superb understanding on the pitch this season, playing crucial roles in the club’s bright start to the current campaign.
The duo are seen by many as Arsenal’s only world class players and Sanchez has revealed he enjoys playing alongside the German.
“I get on the best with Ozil. I enjoy playing with everyone but I get on even better with him. We don’t need to say anything to each other, it just takes a glance , as quoted by Tribalfootball.com.
“Having a player like Ozil in midfield and doing one-twos with him is fantastic because he is a quality player going forward. He helps me and also makes me improve.”
Sanchez’s confession isn’t surprising because it’s always easier when quality players line up alongside each other on the pitch as it makes their job easier for each other. Sanchez and Ozil have played key roles in our achievement in the last couple of seasons and have continued to perform well for us this season, combining to produce 23 of Arsenal’s goals in terms of assists and goals scored across all competitions this season.
Gooners want to see the duo continue to perform for us for a long time and will hope they both sign contract extensions to their current deal which expires in 2018.
While we are confident of convincing Ozil to sign an extension, Sanchez’s situation is a bit complicated and we are hoping the Chilean’s relationship with the German will convince him to commit his future to Arsenal.
