“The sale of Ozil is very bad news for me,” Ronaldo was quoted as saying in Spanish paper AS. “He was the player who best knew my moves in front of goal. I’m angry about Ozil leaving.”
The German playmaker said that he didn’t want to leave the Spanish club but had no option left when the coach and club bosses had lost faith in him.
German manager Joachim Low also expressed his surprise at Real Madrid letting go of Ozil.
“For me, it’s incomprehensible that Real would sell one of their top scorers. Mesut is a sensitive player and he needs the faith from the club and the coach.
It seems that was not longer 100 percent there at Real whereas Arsenal and their coach Arsene Wenger pulled out all the stops to get him,” said Low.
