Mesut Ozil’s agent, Erkut Sogut, hits back at crazy Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness!
Ozil’s agent hit back.
Mesut Ozil decided to quit Germany national team in a lengthy statement that was somehow controversial.
He cited racism and disrespect for his retirement, while he also mentioned DFB president and Turkish president.
It was a long, but “accurate” statement from Ozil, which didn’t go down well with some people.
One of those was also Bayern Munich president, Uli Hoeness. He decided to “attack” Ozil and said that he is only hiding behind that picture (with Turkish president) because of poor performances.
Well, Ozil’s agent Sogut decided to hit back at Hoeness. As reported in Goal, he had this to say.
“The comments of Mr Hoeness miss the point completely, as they have absolutely nothing to do with football. He is trying to divert attention away from the real issue, the issue of racism and discrimination in Germany.
“Mr Hoeness cannot even provide any actual evidence to back up his foolish statements that are clearly exaggerated. He claims that Mesut has been a ‘ghost’ for years, but what ‘ghost’ wins all these awards and has this much success?
“Mr Hoeness, we will not waste any more time or energy talking about a subject clearly you know nothing about. Not only is he a disgrace to himself, but also and more importantly a shame to German football and the people of Germany.”
To be honest, this is a lot more accurate “criticism” from Sogut on Hoeness, as Hoeness talked out of his head and didn’t look at the facts.
“(Hoeness) is a disgrace to himself!”
Erkut Sogut did say a lot more about Hoeness in the interview and you can read about it here.
HOENESS SLAMS OZIL
“I’m glad it is over. He’s been playing dirt for years. He last won a tackle before the 2014 World Cup. And now he hides himself and his c**p performance behind this photo.”

The fact is that Ozil has retired, and he won’t be playing any international football.
He was never really respected in Germany, where he was seen more as Turkish than German, while he has already brought a World Cup success to Germany.
Germany might regret Ozil’s decision, but the fact is that he made the most sensible choice that’s probably pleasing for everyone involved.
