Arsenal midfielder maestro Mesut Ozil has stated that the Gunners manager, Unai Emery is not playing him in his best position.

“For me, it is not my best position,” Ozil told Sky Sports.

“I think my best position is as a No.10 but at the end of the day, I have to accept and respect what the coach decides.

“So I have to give everything I can on the right side, it’s new for me but it’s fun for me as well, especially with the goals and I will continue to give my best on that side.”

Speaking on the impact Emery has made, the former German international commended the coach for his approach since taking over from Arsene Wenger in the summer.

Ozil said: “He’s younger and has brought in some Spanish specialists and wants to make everything perfect.

“The team understand him and he has shown us his character and how he wants to play.

“Of course, we need time to understand everything completely but it is going well. He is a very good coach and as a player, you can speak to him and he listens which makes everything easier for us.”
