Ozil’s dad urges Arsenal star to QUIT Germany after being made ‘scapegoat’

first_img 1 He also came under-fire from the German football federation – along with Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan – having posed for photographs with the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, despite the strained relations between the two countries.Ozil, a key part of the the team which won the World Cup four years ago, has 23 goals in 92 caps for Germany and, at 29, has plenty of years left him in at the top level.But his dad, Mustafa, is unhappy with the treatment his son has received and believes he should end his international career.He told Bild: “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.“He doesn’t always have to defend himself. He’s played in the national team for nine years and became a world champion.“It’s always said that if we win, we win together, but if we lose, we lose because of Ozil.“He’s booed and put up as a scapegoat – I completely understand that he is offended.“Mesut’s been an example for years. The situation is absurd – he loves Germany and has shown commitment to his country, that he’s presented as a scapegoat is so unfair.”Ozil has also divided opinion at Arsenal since arriving from Real Madrid in 2013 for a £42million fee.But he is regarded as key player for the club and signed a new long-term deal earlier this year which made him the Gunners’ highest-paid player.He will also wear the number ten shirt next season, previously worn by Jack Wilshere, who left the club at the start of July.
