Arsenal midfielder, Mesut Ozil has explained that he gets aggressive while training and cannot help but get emotional when he misses big chances in games.
The Arsenal star is yet to show his best performance this first season under Unai Emery, but the Gunners are on an eleven-game winning streak.
The German international inspired a perfect comeback from 1-0 down against Leicester City on Monday, and was praised for leading by example after being handed the captain’s armband by Emery.
However, the club former boos, Arsene Wenger raised questions about Ozil’s motivation this season, even as the German insisted his attitude is on track.
“I always have motivation, particularly before the games, I want to win all the games and I hate to lose, even in training I am pissed and aggressive because I always want to win,” he told Sky Sports.
“I am a very calm person, sometimes on the pitch I get very emotional if I make mistakes or give the ball away because I want to make everything perfect.
“The coach wants me to give everything on the pitch, which is what I do but I still work hard to reach my aims.
“I have said before the main thing is to achieve more than we have over the last few years and I think we have the potential to win something with the team. Hopefully at the end of the season we will win some trophies.”
