Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho seems to have an infatuation with German/ Turkish players at the moment. Having all ready purchased Mesut Özil from Werder Bremen last season he has signed Nuri Şahin off German champions Borussia Dortmund and Hamit Altintop from Bayern Munich. All 3 players are German born of Turkish decent. With Özil playing for Germany while Şahin and Altintop represent Turkey. He seems to love the technique/ flair of Turkish players and discipline and power of German players. Powerful combo.
