But after victory over Osasuna, Mourinho said: "Things aren't difficult for Kaka now - I want both of them. I have four players with serious injuries, but Ozil isn't causing any difficulties for anyone. Today he was very important for the team and if he'd just managed a goal it would have been a great debut.
"Like Sami (Khedira), who had a great game, he's improving. These are new players and they need encouragement and affirmation from the Bernabeu. Ricardo (Carvalho) and Pedro (Leon) also earn that kind of leeway from the fans."
