Real Madrid boss Mourinho blanks Ozil queries

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has blanked questions about Mesut Ozil's status.

Mourinho refused to enter any controversy on the eve of their trip to Barcelona.

"I don't think it is time to create a drama when a player is on the bench. There are 13 players who don't play and every time somebody doesn't play, there is something made of it.

"I am paid to form the line up, I try to do it as well as possible and there are players who are left out, full stop. In Amsterdam I was also asked about Özil and it was the journalist himself who answered his own question," said Mourinho.
