Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is delighted with their capture of Mesut Ozil.

Werder Bremen accepted a €15 million offer from Real yesterday for the midfielder.

"We signed him for a price well below his true value. We could not let go a player like that. He's comparable to Sergio Canales, but different. With the decline of Kaka, I wanted one more. Ozil and Sergio will play often," said Mourinho.

"At Werder he played on the left. With the departure of Diego, he did play behind two strikers. With Germany he acted differently. He can fit in and play in the midfield.

"I have Lass, Khedira and Gago, but his profile is different. He is creative and it is good to have players like that."
