Mesut Ozil has hailed one of Arsenal's new signings this summer - fitness coach Shad Forsythe.
Forsythe joined the Gunners from Germany's national team during pre-season, and was an integral part of the World Cup winners set-up in Brazil this summer.
The American coach had been working with the German national team since 2004.
Forsythe is tasked with improving a Gunners' squad which has been dogged with injuries over recent seasons.
Ozil himself missed six weeks of last season with a hamstring problem, and has worked with Forsythe since making his debut for the national team in 2009.
Forsythe has also worked with Arsenal's other World Cup-winning German players Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski. Ozil, Mertesacker and Podolski all returned to training on Monday after being given an extended break after Germany's World Cup triumph.
