I can't believe this. Mesut Özil, one of the best playmakers of all time, and my favourite current footballer, has retired from international football. And as you probably know, it's because of racial abuse. If you don't know, check out his feed @m10_official •
(I'm skipping straight to the point)
As a human being, I am utterly disappointed at the fact that someone of high post at one of the biggest football associations can have such racist behaviours. The fact that people call Mesut Özil disloyal because of his Turkish/Muslims roots is so stupid considering what he has done in the past World Cups.
2010- Golden Ball nominee.
2014- central in Germany's World Cup win.
2018- Created more chances in free play in round 1 than anyone else.
Where was his treachery? These are idiotic remarks made from people who blame everything on Özil on both club and international level. He has been good in all games last season whenever he had possession. Internationally he was a beats. He is a special player, only one of his kind, and I am truly sad he met this fate.

He is my favourite player so I guess I got a little emotional, but I just can't help feel sorry. My support is always with him.
