Florentino Perez slams Mesut Ozil, says new Arsenal star is “obsessed with women” [abc.es]
- Updated: September 9, 2013
Perhaps stung by the reaction of Real Madrid supporters at Gareth Bale’s presentation, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has launched an offensive against Mesut Ozil in recent days.
Whilst Arsenal fans are deliriously happy with the signing of one of the world’s best players, Perez has called Ozil unprofessional and “obsessed with women.”
In an article published by abc.es, Perez reportedly believes Ozil was not a good professional by the time he left the Bernabeu for Arsenal on transfer deadline day.
At the end of September, Perez will meet with Real Madrid directors to explain the incomings and outgoings at Real Madrid this summer and he will tell them that Ozil was moved on due to an unprofessional attitude.
Although Ozil arrived in Madrid in 2010 as a devout Muslim, Perez says he changed whilst in the Spanish capital: “Mesut discovered the world & became obsessed with women, a world that was alien to him before.”
Perez continued: “It wasn’t about the women but about the late nights, the hours spent not sleeping. He wasn’t a good professional.”
As a result when Ozil’s father came to negotiate with Real Madrid over a salary increase to €8.5m a season, his agent’s attitude and “party lifestyle” meant Real Madrid were happy to let him go.
Seems like a ploy for Perez to gain favour with Real Madrid fans to us… A video showing what Arsenal fans can expect from Mesut Ozil is below, to redress the balance…
