Germany's coach has lead a chorus of astonishment over Real Madrid's decision to sell Mesut Ozil to Arsenal.
But Joachim Loew, who labelled the Spanish giants' move "incomprehensible", insisted the £42.4million transfer is great news for him as it will improve his team in a World Cup year.
Ozil scored 27 times for Real in three seasons and also assisted on the same number of goals... for Cristiano Ronaldo alone.
Speaking before Germany's World Cup qualifier against Austria, Loew said: "For me, it is a bit incomprehensible that Real Madrid would get rid of one of their best players, who is of a high quality and looked more decisive than ever last season.
"Many Real players, like Sami Khedira or Cristiano Ronaldo, are sad about the transfer."
Ozil will now add the creative spark to the Gunners, whose team already includes fellow German internationals Per Mertesacker and, when he's fit again, Lukas Podolski.
Loew added: "Ozil's Arsenal move will be a good transfer for the national team because he will play for a team which has an overall great technique - that is good for him.
"He has a top coach there and, with Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker, he has two German colleagues.
"Mesut is a sensitive player who still needs to feel as though he has complete confidence from his club and coach.
"From what I heard from Madrid ahead of the transfer, you could feel that the trust was no longer there 100 per cent. Arsenal tried hard to sign him. That did him good."
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who coached Ozil at Real until last season, says Arsenal are getting a world superstar.
He said: "Ozil is unique - there is no copy of him. He is the best No 10 in the world. He makes things easier for his team-mates with his play and his decisions. Everyone liked him and you can see a bit of Figo and Zidane in him."
Spanish newspapers claimed Ronaldo had told his Portugal team-mates: "Ozil's exit is bad news for me. He was a player who best knew my moves in front of goal."
And Barcelona's former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has followed several Real stars by publicly expressing his surprise at the sale of Ozil.
"He was the second best player at Real Madrid after Cristiano," said the former Gunners captain.
"I feel I identified with him as we have a very similar style of play and at Arsenal he will be great."
