Mesut Ozil’s father has urged the Arsenal midfielder to end his Germany career. He was subject to strong criticism during the group stages when his team exit the World Cup.
He went on to say “If I were in his place, I would say: ‘Thank you, but that’s enough. He’s bent, disappointed and offended, yes offended. His own fans booed him before the World Cup at the International in Austria and he cannot understand why.”
“It’s always said that if we win, we win together, but if we lose, we lose because of Ozil.”
Ozil, a key part of the team has 23 goals in 92 caps for Germany and at 29, has a long way to go in his career at the top level he plays.
The heat against him started when he and Ilkay Gundogan posed for a photo with the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, despite the strained relations between the two countries.
