The clash between Arsenal midfielder, Mesut Ozil and his country, Germany will likely enter a new phase. This emerged to the media after the news wrote the player officially invited the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to his wedding which will be held in the near future.
Not yet missing from the public memory of how Ozil left the German National Team in an unnatural way. Through his social media account, Ozil wrote a word that he received immodest treatment as German immigrants.
“When we managed to win, we were Germans. But if we lose, I am an immigrant,” Ozil wrote on his personal Instagram account after deciding to withdraw from the German National Team at the 2018 Russian World Cup.
The beginning of this problem occurred when Ozil published a photo together with Erdogan. The Arsenal midfielder is considered to have made a big blunder because he received a closed meeting invitation with Erdogan who was considered to have a problem regarding Human Rights.
This moment is considered inappropriate, where the photo was widely spread to the media with the condition that the German National Team are preparing for 2018 World Cup matches. The bad thing is that the German National Team failed miserably and was eliminated in the group phase.
All of this was seen when Germany narrowly lost 1-0 to Mexico. His true hope came when Germany was able to win narrowly over Sweden with a score of 2-1. But unfortunately, all hope was destroyed when in his last match Germany lost heavily from South Korea.
The moment left a bad story along the gait of Germany in the World Cup, worse they came as defending champions. The public then scapegoated Ozil’s figure as a jinx. They considered Ozil’s contribution to be so bad that Germany was unable to develop, and linked the player’s photo with Erdogan.
As time went on, the problem disappeared as the wind passed. But if you have a review, the problem will return to the surface in the near future. According to the nearest source, Ozil was willing to take the time to meet Erdogan at the Istanbul airport with his fiancee, Amine Gulse.
According to a trusted source, at that time Ozil asked Erdogan to come to his wedding as a guest of honor. Ozil’s action then invited a response from many German politicians, one of whom came from Helge Braun.
As from the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, she was disappointed because assessing Ozil tried to bring up new problems and was considered to open old wounds that should have been lost.
“The fact that this still continues will disappoint many football fans, including me,” said Helge Braun.
So far, Ozil is still an official Arsenal player, and a lot of speculation says that he is already uncomfortable in London and is willing to leave Arsenal if there are offers from outside clubs in the summer transfer window.
