Germany coach Joachim Löw has expressed his dissatisfaction and has criticised Real Madrid for the sale of Mesut Ozil, according to the Guardian.

Löw said that he would have never sold Ozil had he been at the helm and expressed disbelief at the fact that Real would offload one of their leading scorers.

Even his German teammate Sami Khedira is unhappy with the departure of Ozil, according to the national team manager.

"Many Real players like Sami Khedira or Cristiano Ronaldo are sad about the transfer," he said.

"For me, it's incomprehensible that Real would sell one of their top scorers."

Ozil secured a move to Arsenal in the final hours of transfer deadline day, as he felt that he was unwanted in Madrid and that new boss Carlo Ancelotti had lost faith in him.

He saw that he could prosper under Arsene Wenger and so jumped at the chance of becoming the star player in the Gunners' side.

This sentiment was echoed by Löw, who said that the German will flourish under his new manager, as he will definitely get more playing time in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium.

"Mesut is a sensitive player and he needs the faith from the club and the coach," said Löw.

"It seems that was not longer 100% there at Real whereas Arsenal and their coach Arsene Wenger pulled out all the stops to get him.

"He has a top coach there and, with Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker, he has two German colleagues. Arsenal are a strong team who play technically high-quality football."
