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

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil announced his retirement from international football this weekend following Germany's poor 2018 FIFA World Cup, but a certain German legend has suggested he will not be missed.

Confirmed: German World Cup Winner Announces Shock Retirement

Ozil was heavily criticised following his country's exit from the World Cup in Russia, with many fans believing he should not have even been named in the squad after he was seen pictured with the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who many have called a dictator, leading up to the tournament.

The playmaker cited discrimination as his main reason for hanging up his boots at international level, but Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has since claimed that the 29-year-old has not offered Germany much recently anyway.

"Ozil has been playing s*** for years," he told Sport Bild.

"He won his last tackle before the 2014 World Cup. All he is doing on the field is playing cross-passes.

"Now he hides himself and his crap performance behind this photo."

2018 World Cup Flop XI

Ozil played 92 times for Germany, scoring 23 goals and assisting a further 40 strikes, and also won the 2014 World Cup along the way.

Do you think Ozil has been unfairly criticised? Let us know in the comments section below.
