Ozil's Agent Hits Out At Three Germany Stars
Mesut Ozil's agent has hit out at Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller and Manuel Neuer for their reaction to the Arsenal star's retirement from international football with Germany.
Ozil announced his retirement from international football after Die Mannschaft's shock elimination from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, citing reasons of racism in the German football association.
The likes of Kroos, Neuer and Kroos all dismissed claims there is racsim within the association, something that did not sit well with Ozil's agent, Erkut Sogut.
"Neuer indirectly accused Mesut of not having worn the German jersey with pride. This is unacceptable," he told German magazine 11Freunde.
"Muller did not understand the whole discussion. And Kroos, as a seasoned national team player, should explain what he means by 'nonsense'.
"Those (observations) were disappointing and out of context. There are only two explanations for these declarations: They are either naive or calculated."
Do you think it was right for Ozil's former teammates to criticise his decision to retire? Let us know in the comments section below.
