Mesut Ozil has stated he does not need to shout before he can be a leader for Arsenal.
Ozil has been brilliant for Arsenal all season, though they look to end the season without a trophy.
Arsenal have been criticised for their inconsistent form, that has seen them crash out of the FA and the UCL, they have also fallen 11 points behind Leicester, but Ozil says he does try to motivate his team.
“I don’t have to be loud, I don’t have to slate people in the dressing room,” Ozil told the April edition of Arsenal Magazine.
“That’s never been my way, but I’ve spoken a lot in front of the squad this season, especially in the situations where we’ve been behind at half-time and I’ve encouraged the team.
“It’s the same on the pitch. When you’re always there for the team, when you’re playing every week, you become a leader.
“Like I mentioned, I don’t shout at my team-mates, I don’t have a go at them when they do something wrong. I prefer to talk to them and help where I can. I want to be there for the team but I think that’s a normal way to look at things.”
