Real Madrid ace Ozil: I am here because of Mourinho

Mesut Ozil is happy with his first six months at Real Madrid. The Germany midfielder joined Real in the summer from Werder Bremen.

He told ABC: "I have adapted quickly since coming here. I have had the support of my family, and everything has gone without a hitch. It all seems familiar to me. The training is serious, but we have fun together off the field.

"I am so pleased to have joined the world's biggest club, but I still have many dreams that I need to fulfil. I have not won a title yet, and Mourinho told me he wanted me in his team at all costs.

"He convinced me, and I am here. Real Madrid want to achieve success, and this is only possible if everyone in the team supports each other."
