Following their well documented sour relationship, Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has lifted the lid on his 'hard time' under Unai Emery.
Before the arrival of Mikel Arteta, Ozil was linked with a move to Fenerbahce with his £350,000-a-week contract expiring at the end of next season.
The German midfielder insists he feels rejuvenated under Arteta and suggested the former club captain has a better connection with the Arsenal dressing room.
Ozil was overlooked in Emery's most matchday squads with the midfielder opening up on his difficult time under the Spanish tactician.
"I had a hard time, especially with the previous coach Unai Emery, but now everything has changed, and I am very happy with everything. I play regularly and everything goes well.
"Arteta, as I said in my previous interviews, it was surprising to many people that he adopted the club in such a short time. He's doing a good job. He's hungry for success.
"Everything about him is positive. Arteta's story is a bit different because I don't remember when she quit football, but it hasn't been over that long. In this way, players can understand more easily."
