Low bewildered by Mesut Ozil sale

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira admitted that he was disappointed with the club after they sanctioned the sale of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal on transfer deadline day

Germany coach Joachim Low said he was shocked that Real Madrid sold Mesut Ozil to Arsenal but is confident the move will benefit the national team.

• Arbeloa: I thought it was a joke
• Rigg: Ozil sale taints Bale deal

Following the world-record signing of Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur, Madrid agreed to sell Ozil to Arsenal in a €50 million deal that caught many by surprise.

Ozil is currently with the German national team ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Austria and Faroe Islands, and Low said he was amazed that the midfielder -- who, with 72 assists, has created more goals than any other player in the last five seasons -- was allowed to leave.

“It is beyond me why Real would give away the player who created so many goals, but that’s the business,” he told a press conference.

Ozil has indicated that the lack of faith he felt at Madrid was key to the move, and Low added: “Mesut is a sensitive player, who needs to feel trust from the club and coach.

“From what I heard from Madrid ahead of the transfer, you could feel that the trust was no longer there 100%. Arsenal tried hard for him. That did him good.”

Low believes it will be a “good transfer for the national team”, partly because he will link up with international team-mates Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski but also because he “will play for team which has an overall great technique -- that is good for him”.
