Thierry Henry has praised the “amazing” Mesut Ozil and says he is difficult to stop when in full flow.
The Germany international was one of the stand-out players in the FA Cup final, and scored five times and claimed nine assists in his second season at the club.
Henry is a big admirer of Ozil and says his influence on the Arsenal team is growing.
"He is an amazing player. When he is on song like he was in the FA Cup final, he is difficult to stop"
“Mesut is a very good player, we all know about his quality, we all know about what he has done in the game,” he told Arsenal Player. “He is a world champion, you have to respect that and his vision on the pitch is tremendous.
“He is an amazing player. When he is on song like he was in the FA Cup final, he is difficult to stop.
“When you have the likes of Giroud in the box, Alexis Sanchez running at people and Theo too, Mesut can see a pass and control the game in the same way that Santi does.”
Henry believes that the likes of Ozil and Alexis have given Arsenal the quality to mount a sustained title challenge.
“I keep on mentioning players, all that we are waiting on is the consistency in the league,” he said. “I saw some of the players talking about that consistency, and I know they have the quality to do it.”
