Mesut Özil (10)


#3942

Just so unfortunate.

Matthaus and Ballack had similar comments (don’t deserve the free ticket on the team) on Podolski after 2010 WC…
However, Poldi was a happy guy, shrug off the negative comments and stayed till 2016, received a heroic sent out when representing Germany one last time last year.
On the other hand, Ozil is way more sensitive… very sensitive to the comments, especially the negative comments…

So unfortunate.

Men are not really equal, you know???

I don’t even like Matthaus’ personality but have to admit, he is a true legend, and one of the few standouts among all German NT players.

One thing I am not 100% (did not research it) that, Matthaus was really representing DFB or he was a representative of FIFA to meet Putin.

That makes a huge difference IMO.


#3944

Regardless of him being a true legend, if the stance is that as a German, you are not to be associated with individuals who are considered abhorrent, then no German should be exempt of that stance.
It’s just hypocrisy to maintain such exemptions.


#3945

So should Matthaeus be sacked from his position with the DFB then?


#3946

Absolutely correct, hypocrisy.

Hoeness, Reinhardt… a bunch.


#3947

Nah, he is shit.


#3948

No.
I am merely pointing out the hypocrisy.
I don’t see posing with a dictator as criminal offence.


#3949

#3950

Would that be the same as welshman being called sheep shaggers. That never gets called racist.


#3951

That’s because it’s just the natural order of things.


#3952

The euros still rankling then.:sunglasses:


#3953

It is the same, sand even that is racist as well; I get why people don’t see it that way

Respect… from a good friend.


#3955

Love that


#3956

So another word it’s okay for Matthaus’ to shake hands with Putin because…

  1. He’s a “REAL” German
  2. He’s a legend

Think Ozil is right there about the double standards and hypocrisy.


#3957





Özil’s agent is good with words. It was fantastic when he took down Keown.


#3958

MY AGENT :heart:


#3959

It would also be nice if the agent and Ozil could admit how bad the timing of this particular meeting was.

But I guess this stuff is exacttly what they need to keep talking around that.


#3960

While Ozil is in the right, I think Germany has done their fair share of good deeds in bringing in immigrants & helping them find their feet in German society & prosper.

Heard many good stories about them. I hope the recent surge in immigration, the foolish acts of few bad immgrant apples and these controversies doesn’t deter Germany from being awesome.


#3961

Ozil and reps are shitting all over them. Go Mesut.
