Real Madrid boss Mourinho mocks Valdano: He didn't know who Khedira, Ozil were

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has mocked former sports director Jorge Valdano. Mou claims Valdano had no idea who German pair Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira were!

"If we are going to do some analysis then the president and the director general will confirm it and agree," Mourinho told France Football.

"Nobody here knew who Khedira was. The person charged, hypothetically, with this [Valdano] did not know who Khedira was. I can say that for sure.

"They did not know that Khedira was in the last year of his contract and could have joined us very cheaply.

"Neither was it known that Ozil had problems with Werder Bremen. We paid €15million."
