Former Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is retiring from the English Premier League. In his last two years he played for Türkiye (Turkey), but he failed to recover his skills and chose the path of early retirement. He was only 34 years old.
British media recently reported that ‘Ozil is said to have quit his football after his contract in Turkey expired for two years in a row’.
Ozil wore the Arsenal shirt in 2013. He rose to stardom as he earned the full trust of Arsene Wenger, the coach at the time.
Ozil, Germany’s best technical midfielder, led the team’s offense with 19 assists in the 2015-16 season league. Arsenal gave him the highest level of treatment in the Premier League and sat him down.
Unfortunately, it fell into a slump after that. Ozil, who has not regained his level since 2018, terminated his contract with Arsenal in 2021 and joined the Turkiye team. 슬롯사이트
In his last two years, Ozil has played for Fenerbahçe and Besik Tibs, but has never regained his form, which has begun to decline.
Even in Besiktyas, there was only one chance to start the league. It is said that he decided to retire after the team let him go when he showed subpar skills to the extent that he only had a chance to play a total of 7 times until the cup competition.
According to Turkish media reports, Özil announced his retirement to his teammates upon being released from the team. Notably, his retirement came after Manchester United’s Januzaj joined Besiktáz on loan after an ill-fated spell in Sevilla, Spain.
Meanwhile, Ozil was the best technician in Germany. His left foot pass was sophisticated. He was loved as the best playmaker to lead the team’s offense.
Ozil played for Germany and Spain before joining Arsenal. After playing for Bremen in Germany, he moved to Real Madrid in the 2010–11 season. He played 159 games for Real Madrid, scoring 27 goals and providing 81 assists.
Rumor has it that if Özil decides to retire, he will debut in a ‘similar sport’. British Tote Sports said, “Ozil has a lot of interest in e-sports. He wants to play and he will be an esports player.”
Ozil’s ‘e-game love’ is a well-known fact. Despite his sluggishness, Özil never missed a game, and the fans who saw it lashed out at him.
