Mesut Ozil "proud" of Arsenal assist record

Mesut Ozil explains his pride at his assist record for Arsenal.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has spoken of his pride at his assist record for the club.

Ozil, who arrived from Real Madrid for a club-record £42.5m 12 months ago, said that his nine assists last season are just as important as goals that were scored from the chances that were created.

The German international also stated his intention to add more goals to his game for this season in an interview with the club's official website.

He said: "I'm very proud [of my assist record]. Often there is a lot of talk or a lot written about goals and not necessarily about who has given the assist, which is normal. But you can't forget that the assists are just as important as goals.

"But it doesn't matter who sets up the goal or who scores it, the most important thing is that we are successful as a team. I'm a player who doesn't score that many goals but gives a lot more assists.

"Of course my aims this season are to score lots of goals and provide many assists to help the team. I'm positive that I can do that because I have the potential and the faith of the coach."

Ozil was part of the Germany side that won the World Cup in Brazil.
