Germany Team Manager: Maybe We Should Have Left Out Ozil

Germany Team Manager: Maybe We Should Have Left Out Ozil

By SL International - Jul 07, 2018 01:25 PM

Germany suffered a shock group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup, and the team manager has explained why it would have been a good idea not to have called up Mesut Ozil.

The defending World champions failed to advance to the round of 16 after losing 2-0 to Korea Republic in their final group game.

Ozil has once again received a lot of criticism, despite creating a number of chances in the loss to Korea.

Team manager  Oliver Bierhoff feels maybe they should passed on calling up the Arsenal star.

"We should have considered passing on him," Bierhoff told Die Welt.

"We have never forced national team players to do something, but rather always tried to convince them.

"We failed to do that with Mesut. And thus, we should have considered passing on him for sporting reasons.

"I believe the fact that Mesut and Ilkay took the pictures did not distract the squad so much. But the debate afterwards did. In hindsight, I should have tried to handle the issue more clearly."

Ozil is one of the best players. Germany just didn't perform as whole on this tournament. Germany can't fail because of one player because they have many talented players who can fill that individual player. This tells majority of didn't perform.

I was so happy to see Germany loosing in group stages. How do u explain leaving Leroy Sane after a perfect season he had with Man City. OZIL has been a bench warmer at Arsenal. They got served

This whole Germany team (except Kroos) was a waste why pick Ozil only?

He is a Turkey after all why he chose to represent the Deutsch it is beyond my little medulla. He is the obvious choice to be made a scapegoat. Besides that my personal opinion I always saw him as lazy player who feeds off others hard work.
