Ancelotti’s Ozil confession
Real Madrid would probably take Mesut Ozil back again.
The Spanish side refused to think twice about ensuring the departure of Ozil when the midfielder showed signs of being unsettled at the club back in late August.
That resulted in the biggest of signings for Arsenal as the German star arrived on transfer deadline day in a record deal at the Emirates stadium.
And with the Gunners reaping the rewards of landing Ozil, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti who was first to pave the way out of the Bernabeu for Ozil, has sensationally admitted it was all an error. His error.

“We made a mistake when we gave him [Mesut Ozil] the opportunity to leave the club,” Ancelotti said
“So we decided, well, I decided, to stay with Di Maria, even though Di Maria has less skill than Ozil.”
Indeed, Ancelotti’s confession about the Ozil transfer was so embarrassing that the Italian later denied making those remarks in any interview.
But Gulf News who published the initial quotes have now released an audio recording of the interview with Ancelotti where he conceded defeat in the Ozil decision.
