Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, revealed in an audio recording how Jose Mourinho forced Mesut Ozil to dump his girlfriend while they were both at Real Madrid.
El Confidencial, a Spanish publication, published a series of audio recordings from 2012 in which Real Madrid president Jose Mourinho was caught badmouthing some of his players and coaching staff, including Mourinho.
Perez’s feelings on former Real Madrid star Mesut Ozil were disclosed in the most recent batch.
Speaking about Ozil, he said, “[Ozil] came here aged 21. He is third generation Turk and then he discovers Madrid. There was nothing, no Turks, dicks, third generation or girlfriend.
“He sent his girlfriend away and changed his lifestyle, falling for an Italian model from Milan. He had a private jet, so he would fly out there, have sex and come back.
“Then one day, he annoyed Jose Mourinho, who jokingly said ‘Hey Ozil, idiot, let me tell you something as if I were your father, because this girl you’re going out with has f**ked everyone at Inter and AC Milan, including the coaching staff of both teams.’ [Ozil] ended up leaving her.”
