Former Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires has called the German midfielder Mesut Ozil a “maestro” and urges him to sign a new contract.

“Mesut Ozil has very good qualities. He can normally score a minimum of 12 goals during the Premier League,” Pires told “In my time the maestro was Dennis Bergkamp and now it is Mesut Ozil. I love them both because they play very good football but they play for the team.Something has clicked. What’s happened in the head is like a click because he’s scored a lot of goals.”

Arsenal travel to Manchester to face the Red Devils this Saturday.
