Ozil: "It's important to have the manager's trust."

Mesut Ozil is keen on staying at Arsenal so far Arsene Wenger continues to be the boss at the Emirates.

The midfield ace's current deal at the north London club expires within a year and recent negotiations between the club and the player have failed to come to an agreement. However, the Germany international is keen to know if Wenger stays or leaves. "It's not just important for me but for the whole club," Ozil told the Daily Mail. "It's important to know if he stays or if he goes. We need to think towards next season. "He's very important," the 28-year old continued. "In my career I've always made decisions not just because of clubs but managers, too. "As a footballer, it's important to have the manager's trust and believe they can develop you. "When I went from Madrid to Arsenal, I came for him because I told him at the time he'd be my first option. That was the case. We still have a super understanding today. "I have his trust, he's a superb coach. He's been successful for many years, he's been here for 20 years and has always managed to get Arsenal to reach the Champions League, making Arsenal a big club. He deserves to be shown respect."
