Mesut Ozil has unfollowed Fenerbahce on social media after new boss Jorge Jesus confirmed he was not part of his plans at the club.
Ozil’s nightmare in Turkey is coming to an end after Jesus said the 34-year-old Germany international would no longer play for them.
“He had his time, his space,” Jesus said at a press conference. “He has a beautiful history in Turkey, no one can take that away from him.

“He is a well-known player all over the world. But I’ll follow exactly what was the end of the Ozil era. The most important thing here is Fenerbahce and from there I build my ideas and the players who come to work with me.”
Despite his contract still having two years left, Ozil has unfollowed Fenerbahce on his various social media accounts, almost confirming that his time at the club is over.
He has not played in Turkey’s Super Lig since March 20 after being banned from the squad following an argument with interim head coach Ismail Kartal over his fitness.
Kartal didn’t get the managerial job permanently, but Jesus has promised to follow in his footsteps and keep the former Arsenal star, who earns £350,000 a week at Fenerbahce, away from the base.

Ozil could now be set to trade football for Fortnite, according to his agent Dr. Erkut Sogut
Sogut said his client was an avid FIFA and Fortnite player and said he “wouldn’t be surprised” if the midfielder turned into a professional gamer
Ozil’s turmoil in Turkey has forced him to look to the next steps in his career – and his agent Dr. Erkut Sogut has revealed that he can trade football for Fortnite.
‘He will get more into eSports, play himself and maybe become an eSports athlete’ Sogut told The Telegraph.
“He’s really good, to be honest, at Fortnite and I guess one day I wouldn’t be surprised if he joins.
“He’s got a team – M10 Esports – and he’s got players. He has a playhouse in Germany. He has football, like FIFA and Fortnite.”
Sogu’s comments may come as no surprise given Ozil’s love of gaming. In 2018, Arsenal manager Unai Emery had to deny that playing video games was behind a back injury the German suffered.
Ozil has been through a rough patch since he left Arsenal in January 2021 and Sogut believes the club could have handled his departure better.
Ozil made 36 appearances for the club, scoring nine goals, often being the captain
He likes to relax by playing video games and his rep says it is a feasible way
Leading up to Ozil’s departure, the player criticized China for its mistreatment of Uyghur Muslims, while he himself came under fire for posing for a photo with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
“It was a club that was always politically neutral, but not neutral anymore, right? They’ve given up,” he added.
‘They can’t just remain neutral in certain situations. Now they have spoken to Ukraine. They now take a position as a club.
“Now they are candid about problems in the world who then Mesut said, ‘We don’t want to discuss things like that.’
“But it was a development I think, both for them and for a club, that things are changing and they have to adapt as well.”
