Mesut Ozil feels his right foot is a weakness to his game but continues to work on improving himself at Arsenal.

Ozil: Real Madrid pressure unrelenting

The German, who notched 19 assists in the Premier League last season, has changed his game with seven goals in 14 appearances in all competition already this term.

Ozil, who has won the World Cup with Germany, La Liga with Real Madrid and FA Cup with Arsenal, has underlined the need for a player to continue improving, especially in the more demanding world of English football.

“If you want to develop as a footballer, you have to work on your weaknesses every day,” he told the club’s official website.

“You have to have talent but, of course, nobody is perfect, and you have to work hard to minimise those weaknesses as well as you can. I’m working hard on that – for example, I’m not ambidextrous, so I’m working on my right foot too.

“Especially if you play in the Premier League, you have to look after your body because the matches are very demanding and you have plenty of matches. That’s why you have to work hard, to make sure you stay fit.

“I knew that if I moved to Arsenal, I would develop myself further, especially under the boss. I’m on a good way, the team really supports me, the manager gives me his trust and you see that I enjoy myself on the pitch.”
