I wonder when the dust would finally settle over Ozil’s switch to Arsenal. Comments have been rife over his surprise switch and his former teammates have expressed their disappointment at Madrid’s decision to sell the German. In a visible attempt to defend their master, Real Madrid’s hatchet press Marca have launched a stinging attack on their former midfielder, accusing him of deceit and opting to join Arsenal because of the money and not Madrid’s desire to cash in or Wenger’s persuasive powers as Ozil suggested.
The accusations leveled against Ozil is that he chose money over success and also lied against Ancelotti by claiming he didn’t have the trust of the Italian despite starting two games under him all in a bid to secure a move away.
“Arsène Wenger must be quite the charmer! Or could it be that Özil and his father, Mustafa, already had their minds made up for other reasons?”
Wonder why Real are crying foul through their mouthpiece? If they accuse him of leaving for the money, what should Tottenham say of Bale? They also said he chose money over success. I think that appellation fits Ronaldo better, how successful has been the Portuguese attacker since he swapped Old Trafford for Bernabeu? In 4 years, he has won only a league title and a Copa Del Rey and yet to play in a Champions league final. So what success are they talking about? I know Arsenal haven’t won a trophy in 8 years but it is also a shame that a club of Real’s standing despite the plethora of expensive buys and constant hiring and firing of managers are yet to play in a Champions League final since they won it in 2001.
Real Madrid should stop crying foul. They traded a very good player just to acquire a more high profile one. They should stop unsettling Ozil, he is at a new club now and they should allow him move on. Rather that dotting on him, they should focus on unworthy world record signing.
