The Germany World Cup winner believes he needs
to be more ruthless in front of goal if he is to be
recognised alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil believes he needs to be
more selfish if he is to achieve his ambition of
winning the Ballon d’Or.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who took the
Argentine’s crown as the best player in the world in
January, have won the award every year since
2010 on the back of their record breaking
goalscoring exploits.

Ozil scored just five times in 32 games for Arsenal
last season and has been challenged by Arsenal
manager Arsene Wenger to reach double figures

Ozil missed Arsenal’s victory over Newcastle last
weekend with a minor knee injury but has been
included as part of Joachim Low’s Germany squad
ahead of their Euro 2016 qualifiers against Poland
and Scotland.
