According to German footballer Mesut Ozil, Joel Willock and Reiss Nelson should enjoy every moment of their development in the Premier League.

Youngsters Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson should be enjoying their time at Arsenal, according to Mesut Ozil.

“The most important thing is to believe in yourself,” Ozil told Sky Sports.

“Of course you have some days when it doesn’t go so well, but you have to believe in yourself, keep working and the most important thing is to have fun.”

“If you don’t have fun, if you are losing and you make mistakes you will be disappointed. But don’t listen to anyone, you know how good you are, believe in yourself and have fun,” he added.

“I was nervous [when I entered the first-team dressing room at Schalke], but also excited because it was the first time I spent time with the players.”

“I was very, very quiet. I didn’t speak a lot in the dressing room, I was just looking to the left and the right and couldn’t believe I was here now playing with them. It was a great moment for me,” he said.

“It was easier for me to show my potential on the pitch because they all helped me a lot. They stood behind me, so I was able to just enjoy playing football.”
