MOST COMMENTED

In an interview with Yahoo! Sport, Jose Mourinho called Arsenal and Germany international Mesut Ozil “a very sensitive boy” who needs “confidence” and “trust” in order to perform his best. Mourinho coached Ozil for three seasons as coach of Real Madrid.

When asked about Ozil’s waning performances for Arsenal last season, the Chelsea coach said: “If you were expecting Ozil to be super-aggressive and to be running miles and miles from side to side and to show great enthusiasm and aggressiveness, this is not Mesut. If you are waiting for somebody where every time he touches the ball, the ball smiles. Every time he makes a pass, the ball goes with the right direction, the right speed, the right intensity, this is Ozil."

He added: “I learned with him because we were together for quite a long time, that he's a very sensitive boy. He needs confidence. He needs trust. He needs to feel that people are with him. When he's on the pitch, every time he touches the ball, the ball goes beautiful.”
