The secret why Ozil is so special on the pitch?

Ozil Arsenal 5

In an interview with German media Ozil’s partner may have revealed the Arsenal’s superstar secret.

It is fair to say that Mesut Ozil is facing a little downfall. In Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Southampton it seemed he was lost on the pitch, despite his two fine passes. His performance could currently cause concern, some are saying.

Arsene Wenger addressed the critics in today’s press conference saying:

'First of all he is a hugely talented player. He just arrived here three months ago and overall he did not have the best of preparations for the league. He is a young player, he is 25 years old so of course there is a lot of room for improvement for him.'

But despite Ozil's downfall he still is one of the greatest. Why he is so special? His secret might have been revealed in an interview with his partner, singer Mandy Capristo, in German newspaper Bild.

Asked how a mansion of a football and a music star looks like, she answered: 'We really have a goal in our garden.'

Is that Ozil secret? Is he doing exercises after work to practice his volley? – Maybe.

It works well for other world-class sport stars. NBA All-Star Dirk Nowitzki tries to improve his throwing mechanics after training and future Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Peyton Manning is also known for his after-hour training sessions. So why not Ozil?
