It’s rare that Jose Mourinho has anything nice to say about anyone involved with Arsenal, but the Chelsea boss has always admitted to being a big fan of Mesut Özil.
The Portuguese boss worked with the World Cup winner during his time at Madrid, and has regularly heaped praise on him. He has once again paid the German No.10 a huge compliment, and has named him in his all-time best XI, courtesy of The Telegraph.
Özil is there alongside a host of Chelsea greats, including Eden Hazard and Frank Lampard. His former Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo is understandably also there, as it would be almost impossible to leave him out of any best XI.
Here’s the unbelievable side, featuring players from Mourinho’s Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid teams.
Our record signing’s form has been superb as of late, and he is finally earning the praise he deserves from fans and pundits alike. He was instrumental during our 4-1 win over Liverpool this past weekend, and played a part in several of the goals.
Hopefully he can continue his fine form for the remainder of the season, and help us not only retain the FA Cup, but keep up the pressure on Mourinho and Chelsea as well.
We think that with Oscar struggling this term, Mourinho might wish he’d have tried to sign the world-class German when we managed to secure his services.
