Ozil: Ronaldo made me a better player

Mesut Ozil admits Cristiano Ronaldo knows how many assists came from him, but says the Real Madrid forward helped him become a better player.

“Cristiano Ronaldo, I never saw one guy like him,” Ozil told Arsenal’s YouTube channel. “He is the first guy in the dressing room and the last guy to go home.

“He wants to fight even in a training game. He made me better on the pitch. Of course, I give my assists, a lot, to him and he knows. But I really enjoyed playing with him because he does not need a lot of chances.

“So even if I give him two assists, he will score two. Amazing player. One of the greatest players in history.”
