Real Madrid play down bad boy claims directed at Arsenal's Ozil

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has denied claims that he accused Mesut Ozil of unprofessional behaviour.

Madrid-based ABC newspaper reported that the new Arsenal signing 'wasn't a good professional and was obsessed with women and nightlife' prompting plenty of negativity the way of the Spanish giants.

However, Real has rejected the accusation by sending a statement to Sport Bild rejecting the accusations.

"Neither president Fiorentino Perez, nor any other member of the football club has anything to do with the published information in the Spanish newspaper about the player Mesut Ozil," the statement read.

"The newspaper has confirmed that nobody within the club contacted them and made a statement about this topic.

"Real Madrid regret that the statements, which had nothing to do with the football club, have prompted a reaction from Ozil's father.

"We again thank Mesut Ozil and wish him all the best for the future."
