Arsenal boss Unai Emery believes Mesut Ozil is benefitting from his Germany retirement.
Emery thinks Arsenal have benefitted from the German’s decision to retire from international football after last summer’s World Cup.
“For us, he’s a very important player because of his quality,” said Emery. “He’s showing us that we need his quality.
“It’s the consistency every day in training and in matches, also his mentality to improve more in his work every day. He stopped with his national team and his focus is on us in each moment in each match.
“I want him to continue to continue with his commitment, his behaviour, playing and thinking he can improve more. Each match is a good opportunity for him and the team to continue doing the things better.”
