Mesut Ozil has revealed he is working every day to eradicate the main weakness in his game and strengthen his right foot.
The Arsenal playmaker has been in superb form this season adding goals, seven in all competitions, to the assists he is more commonly associated with.
At 28, Ozil is at the peak of his powers but claims he is constantly trying to improve and believes making sure he is two-footed, like his Arsenal teammate Santi Cazorla, will add an extra dimension to his game.
He told Arsenal.com: ‘I think it’s really important [to keep working],” he told Arsenal Player. “If you want to develop as a footballer, you have to work on your weaknesses every day.
‘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.’
