Mesut Ozil's stellar performance against Osasuna has garnered much praise from the press, his team-mates and coach Mourinho.
"Ozil makes things very easy for me and for his team-mates with his football vision and the decisions he makes. It's easy for him to make decisions on the pitch, which is actually the hardest thing there is in football. It is an art to make football look easy and he has that quality. Ozil is improving. He worked hard for the team on Saturday and the Bernabeu thanked him for it. This is very important for a newcomer who needs the crowd's approval in order to be confident in his game."
"Ozil has such quality that we just have to leave him room to showcase it."
Agencia EFE (Spanish news agency)
"Ozil makes it look easy. He is elegant, doesn't make broad gestures and doesn't complain. His handling of the ball is elegant and he showcased wide vision against Osasuna. He is a true relief for Higuain, Cristiano and Benzema."
El Pais (newspaper)
"The Germany player won the crowd at the Bernabeu in a decent game that marked the coach's debut at the stadium."

"Ozil led a champion team to victory against Osasuna. The player was one of Real Madrid's standout players thanks to his passes."
