When We Lose I Am Turkish; Ozil Retires From International Football

Mesut Ozil has confirmed that he is retiring from international football with immediate effect following the “treatment he received from the DFB.”

The Arsenal attacker claims that the way he has been treated by the German football association makes him “no longer want to wear the German national team shirt.”

The Germany midfielder made the announcement on Sunday evening citing “racism and disrespect” following his high-profile and controversial meeting with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan prior to the World Cup.

The picture with Erdogan, which was taken before this summer’s World Cup, saw the Arsenal midfielder pose with the Turkish president and German teammate Ilkay Gundogan.

Both players came in for heavy criticism from fans and pundits in their homeland as a result with leading German football figures including Oliver Bierhoff and Ottmar Hitzfeld suggesting that both should not have been allowed to represent their country in Russia.

  1. When will racism be a thing of the past in the round leather game? Four years ago he was a hero when he won the World Cup with Germany and now he is Turkish because they lost, common people this is no way to treat a star of his class.
