Real Madrid assistant coach Zinedine Zidane insists Mesut Ozil pushed to leave the club.
There's a lot of bitterness between both camps over why the player was sold to Arsenal.
"Ozil decided to leave,” said Zidane. “He is a good player who has given us so much so we wish him well.
“There are players who have responded with strength and will to fight for a place but not everyone reacted in the same way. [Angel] Di Maria responded well and wanted to fight for us.”
