Low happy with Ozil and Khedira Real moves

Germany coach Joachim Low believes the national team will benefit from Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil's experience of playing in Spain with Real Madrid.

Khedira and Ozil departed the Bundesliga for the Bernabeu over the summer after starring at the World Cup in South Africa, with new Real boss Jose Mourinho snapping the pair up for a combined fee of around €26 million.

Low's entire World Cup squad was made up of German-based talent, but after watching two of his star turns cement their starting places in one of the best teams in Europe, the Germany coach admits he has been delighted with the duo's decision to move to La Liga.

"I am very happy that Ozil and Khedira are at Real Madrid with a great coach like Mourinho," Low said. "It is a good step for them. Spain has high quality football, especially with Barcelona. I love the way they play, with speed and with great technique."

Germany have started their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign with two victories against Belgium and Azerbaijan, and Low will be hoping that Khedira and Ozil will be available to spearhead his side's next two qualifiers against Turkey and Kazakhstan in October.
