'Ozil is an artist' - Wenger insists 'special' Arsenal midfielder is not 'difficult to manage'

 The Frenchman says he never had any problems with the ex-Germany international, but has admitted that he is a "sensitive" character

Arsene Wenger has insisted that Mesut Ozil is not "difficult to manage", while describing the "special" Arsenal midfielder as an "artist".

Wenger convinced Ozil to join Arsenal from Real Madrid for a then-club record fee of £43 million ($57m) in the summer of 2013.

The ex-Germany international arrived at Emirates Stadium with a reputation as one of the best creative players in European football, and soon became a fixture in the Arsenal starting line up due to his ability to carve open defences with his exceptional passing range.
