Swansea boss Laudrup surprised Arsenal convinced Real Madrid to sell Ozil

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup admits Mesut Ozil's decision to leave Real Madrid for Arsenal surprised him.

Arsenal made light work of the Swans yesterday.

"I have to admit I was very surprised when I saw he had left Real Madrid as he is a fantastic player," he said.

"Arsenal is a great club too but with Real Madrid you are playing in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals of the Champions League.

"I was also surprised with the way it happened on the last day of the transfer window as I did not imagine a player with his quality would be changing team at the last moment, but he did and you have to say well done to Arsenal."
