Ramos laments Ozil's transfer to Arsenal

The Spain international believes the Geman international is a "unique" player and concedes he will miss his former teammate on a personal level.

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos admits he would not have sold Mesut Ozil to Arsenal if he was in charge of the Spanish club.

The Germany international secured a deadline-day switch to Arsene Wenger's side in a 50 million euro deal, and Ramos concedes he will miss Ozil on a personal level and believes the 24-year-old is a "unique" player.

"It's obvious that he is a special teammate and friend," Ramos told reporters. "I've always had a real friendship with him, and it's a shame. He's a great footballer, unique.

"Everyone is free to choose the best for themselves, but if I were to decide what was happening at Madrid he would be one of the last who would be going.

"But he has decided, and the club too. We have a great team, and I hope it will be a big year [for us]."
