German has rejected recent suggestions that he was unprofessional at Real. Check in to Sunderland vs Arsenal New club-record signing Mesut Ozil says that he moved to Arsenal because he has the “trust” of Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger unlike at his former club Real Madrid according to reports in the Daily Mirror. The hugely talented Germany international completed his surprise £42.4 million transfer to the Emirates in the final hours of transfer deadline day after being frozen out by the Liga giants with the 24-year-old agreeing an eye-catching five-year contract worth £140000 per week. However Ozil’s departure from the Santiago Bernabeu has caused outrage back in the Spanish capital especially amongst the Madrid fans as well as with some of the playmaker’s former team-mates too. It is understood that Madrid president Florentino Perez gave new manager Carlo Ancelotti an ultimatum: either he keeps Ozil or Argentina international Angel Di Maria at the club this season but not both star players though with the Spanish outfit needing to balance the books following the recent world-record 100m euro capture of Tottenham Hotspur wide man Gareth Bale. And now following rumours in the Spanish press of late regarding Ozil’s professionalism during his three-year stay at the club the German has decided to hit back at his former employers saying: “People know how professional I am and this is what counts. All the rumours I don’t care about them. I have a new task here. I’m just looking ahead. I am in London now.
I Would Have Joined Arsenal For Free, Claims Mesut Ozil
