Del Piero praises 'enchanting' Arsenal star Ozil, who he says was 'sacrificed'

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has yet another high profile admirer.

Mesut Ozil is growing quite the fan club. Not only does he have the entire Arsenal football family behind him and the whole of Germany, but many legends of the game too.

One to add his name to the list of admirers is Alessandro Del Piero.

The legendary Juventus number 10 scored almost 300 goals for the Turin giants, leaving Italy to ply his trade in Australia in 2012.

He was interviewed by Spanish newspaper AS ahead of Juventus' Champions League tie with Real Madrid, and hd glowing words to say about their former playmaker.

"At first it surprised me. But deep down, I think to deal with such a large expense such as Gareth Bale, Real had to make a sacrifice.

"Anyway, Özil continues to enchant me.This is a great player who is playing a very complicated position to understand."

If anyone would understand the complexities and intricacies surrounding the Arsenal man's skills, a player like Alessandro Del Piero would be one such person.

Absolutely glowing praise for the Gunner, and a quote he should write down and post in his personal scrapbook.

What similarities, if any, can you see between Ozil and Del Piero?
