Ozil Is World Class –Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has heaped praise on fellow Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil, describing him as a world-class player.

This was after Ozil helped the Gunners secure a 2-0 Europa League win over AC Milan on Thursday night.

The 29-year-old Germany international provided two stunning assists for Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey at the San Siro, to help his side bring an end to their run of four straight games without a win with a victory on the road in the first leg of their last-16 clash.

When the Armenian was asked about the practicalities of playing with Ozil, he was quick to laud the abilities of the former Real Madrid playmaker.

“Yes, everyone is asking about that [being able to play in the same team as Ozil], but why not?” Mkhitaryan said when speaking to Vivaro News.

“This is not the first time that two number tens play together. It’s just a pleasure to play alongside such a player like Mesut Ozil because everyone knows that he is a world-class player.

“If I’m not mistaken, he provided two assists for the first and second goals. Why not? He can assist me and I can assist him as well.”

Mkhitaryan got his first goal for Arsenal since joining from Manchester United in January after he provided three assists on his debut against Everton but has struggled to influence an underperforming Arsenal side in recent weeks.
