'We Never Wanted Ozil'

The CEO of one of the biggest teams in Europe has responded to claims that his club were after former Real Madrid superstar Mesut Ozil, who recently retired from international football with Germany.

Germany Respond To Ozil Racism Accusations

Before the playmaker signed a new deal with Arsenal last season, he was linked with several clubs around the world, including German giants Bayern Munich.

However, Bavarians CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has now denied ever being interested in the midfielder.

"Mesut Ozil was never a player that we dealt with (as a potential signing) at 1%. Never," he told Sport Bild.

"When we played in London, Uli (Hoeness) always said: 'I hope he plays tonight.'"

Rummenigge also feels that Ozil citing racism as the reason for his international retirement is ridiculous, and blamed the players' agent for those claims.

"He was not criticised because he has Turkish heritage," he added.

"That is a tale that his agents tell us.

"And that is something that annoys me more and more recently. Nowadays, agents do many interviews and statements. Sometimes it is like a fairy tale audition."

'Ozil Has Been S*** For Years!'

Ozil previously represented Schalke and Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, a league he left eight years ago.

Do you think Ozil is being unfairly criticised by Rummenigge? Let us know in the comments section below.
