Arsenal midfielder, Mesut Ozil has stated that club manager, Unai Emery is not playing him in his best position.

However, the German international while saying he is happy to learn how to play in the new position, stressed that his best role in the team would be as a No. 10 behind the striker.

“For me it is not my best position,” Ozil told Sky Sports.

“So I have to give everything I can on the right side, it’s new for me but it’s fun for me as well, especially with the goals and I will continue to give my best on that side.”

The 30-year-old however praised Emery for his approach since taking over from Arsene Wenger in the summer.

“He’s younger and has brought in some Spanish specialists and wants to make everything perfect,” said the midfielder.

“The team understand him and he has shown us his character and how he wants to play.
