Ozil has come to the rescue of his compatriot and Germany teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger, who joined United.
Critics have talked about Schweinsteiger’s body not being able to cope with the rigors of the EPL and the Germany international is yet to complete a match.
But Arsenal midfielder, Ozil believes his national team captain will get better as time goes on and silence his critics.
“The drastic interim judgment in [the] English press is not fair towards him,” Ozil told Germany’s Sport 1.
“He certainly needs some time to adjust to Premier League. Just allow him a bit of time.
“Basti has shown the whole world at the World Cup what a leader he is, most of all in the final.
“Whenever the English media writes about Bastian, they put a World Cup winner before his name.
“He’s now the German world champion, who should make the difference for United.”
