Mesut Ozil talked shop in an interview with El Pais.
"I didn't suffer one bit to adapt to Mourinho's tactical discipline. He gave me confidence and I am grateful for that. The reason I've been able to play so well in the last few years is because I feel very comfortable. We forwards must also work hard. I've become a more constant player and I will improve even more with Mourinho."
"Iker Casillas has been the best goalkeeper in the world these past five years. He is a legend at Real Madrid and a good friend who helps you whenever he can."
"I always played with older footballers and I used to be told by them that, some day, I would be great."
