Mesut Ozil of German football team is one of the latest prey of racism in football and the world of sports. Mesut Ozil, the popular German play maker has decided to quit international football and has said that he would never ever play for Germany again. It is mainly due to the racist comments that he has received from different corners including the German football officials. It all happened when he was spotted in a picture standing with Turkey President Erdogan, when they two met. Ozil is of Turkish roots, but has been living in Germany and also holds a German citizenship. He was one of the best playmakers Germany has ever produced and has played for Germany in the World Cup tournaments of 2010, 2014 and 2018 respectively. Mezut Ozil is still 29 years old and his premature retirement from International football will be a big loss for Germany as well as for the football fans across the world.
