Ozil - The changes Arteta has made already

It may be early days in the Mikel Arteta era, but Mesut Ozil likes what he sees from our new head coach.

The pair used to be team-mates, but the World Cup winner feels our head coach is perfectly suited to his new role.

"He can show us everything he has learnt his long career so he knows exactly what we need to do, and so we know what we need to do as well," Ozil said. "He just pushes us far to get there so we can play successfully.
 
"He knows what to say to us, how to give us a positive attitude and how to make us be successful. I can see he is really hungry, but at the same time he is very down to earth and that is a very good characteristic to make us be a successful team.

"It is basically getting us back to the old Arsenal virtues. Fighting and having possession, being in control of the game, having the ball all the time. These are the things that he is working on with us and you can see it – everyone is smiling, laughing, enjoying their time at the moment and this has made us be successful now.
 
"I think he is the right man at this club."

'I am the biggest fanboy of Conor McGregor!'

When Conor McGregor named Kieran Tierney as his favourite footballer at a press conference in Russia in October, it was just another example of the pair's rapport.

While on the face of it an unlikely sporting friendship, UFC fighter McGregor formed a bond with Tierney while our left-back was playing for former club Celtic.

Tierney admits that he's a massive fan of the Irish mixed martial artist – and is sure to be tuning in when he makes his return at UFC246 on Saturday.

"I met him in Belfast at a UFC event and that's what started it off," Tierney told Arsenal Player.

"I am the biggest fanboy of Conor McGregor ever! Honestly, the documentaries I've watched... I've watched every video on YouTube, twice!

"For me to have a relationship with him [is great].

"I messaged him back and forth on Instagram, and sent him over a shirt that he wore and put on Instagram. To see that... I didn't get any sleep that night after I saw it!

"He supports me as well, so I'm delighted to just be friends with him."
