Theo Walcott confirms what we already all suspected: Mesut Ozil’s footballing brain is on another level.
Speaking recently, the Arsenal forward explained how much he enjoys linking up with a number of players in our squad, namely Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil.
Walcott gushed about his English and Welsh teammates, saying, “I get on well with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, who tend to often look for that ball between the centre back and the full back, which I love to run on to. All it takes is a slight little eye contact and they know what I’m going to do.”
The 26-year-old added, “Mesut is a similar player, he just looks forward first and you want to have a lot of those guys in the team. We have many options like that in this team.”
Although we’ve known for a while that the likes of Ozil and Ramsey have fantastic footballing vision, having it confirmed by a forward who gets to play with them in training everyday and on the pitch (once in a while) just goes to show that they’re unreal to other footballers as well – not just to us mere mortals.
The quality we have in our squad is honestly exciting – some of the best in the Premier League – and the fact that our forwards agree is also great to see.
Hopefully Walcott factors this in during his contract negotiations.
