thumbnail Hello,

Mesut Oezil thanks the Real Madrid fans for their support and hopes to continue his form

Real Madrid's summer signing Mesut Oezil has been speaking of the sheer honour of being well received by the fans in the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I was proud to hear the applause from the audience, really proud. The crowd is helping me a lot but also all the team," Oezil told Marca.

"I always want to give the best I can on the field and hope people will continue to be happy with my football at the end of the game with Ajax, but most importantly because the team has won.

"We want to win everything, including the Champions League, and I urge the fans to trust us. [Jose] Mourinho motivates us a lot but he also demands the utmost from his team. I enjoy playing here and it shows on the field," the German international explained.

Los Blancos will take on Ajax tonight in their Champions League curtain raiser and will look to set the record straight this year after plenty of disappointment in the competition in recent times.
