Real Madrid signing Ozil: I want to play with the best - and Mourinho is the best

Mesut Ozil admits he's thrilled to have signed with Real Madrid. The former Werder Bremen midfielder held a media conference at the Bernabeu yesterday.

"I'm very happy that in the end the whole story has come to a happy ending. Until yesterday, I still did not know anything. Now I have a great challenge before me and I'm glad and happy to deal with it.

"There was no other option than to play for Real Madrid. I knew that I wanted to play in the best team in the world and for the best coach. And for me Mourinho is the best, and I wanted to play with him.

"We talked, but what we said is between us. What I can say is I talked with him and he persuaded me.

"The Liga or Champions League? Both are very important. We want to win the League and the Champions League. I think we have the potential and quality necessary to fight for the two competitions.

"I came here to win titles."
