Mesut Ozil spoke to Arsenal’s YouTube channel recently and revealed why he’s proud to live in London.

The playmaker described his time as a child in Germany learning about new cultures and admitted that the three years he spent at Real Madrid also allowed him to learn about the Spanish language and traditions.

Now, the 27-year-old lives in north London, giving him the chance to learn English, as well as experience the multi-cultural city – something he says he’s proud of.

Ozil has never hidden the fact he loves London and is very happy here. It’s great to see and, to be honest, reassuring that he doesn’t want to run off the first chance he gets.
