Real Madrid boss Ancelotti blasts Arsenal's Ozil: He didn't want to fight for place

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has taken a swipe at new Arsenal hero Mesut Ozil. Ancelotti sys Ozil didn't have the stomach to fight for a starting berth in his line-up.

Ancelotti said: "I've heard a lot of people talk about the departure of Ozil and now it's my turn to talk.

"Nobody leaves Madrid if they don't want to leave.

"Ozil thought he had a lot of competition for places and asked to leave. It doesn't happen to everyone.

"The coaching staff's decision was to let Ozil leave.

"We received a good bid and everyone was satisfied."
