Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has dismissed claims from Real Madrid about the temperament of new teammate Mesut Ozil.

Real president Florentino Perez claimed Ozil couldn't handle the pressure of being a player with the Madrid giants.

But Cazorla told AS: "I don't know, but seeing Mesut's play in recent years, I doubt it. Ozil was a highlight of Madrid.

"The Madrid president has done great things for the club by signing spectacular players. Sure there will be people upset about it, but without knowing more of what I read, they have their reasons (for selling)."
