It is no longer news that Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has called it quit with the German national team as he claimed he was racially abused by the DFB (Germany) football association.
The player was unconvincing for the German machine during their forgettable World Cup showings in Russia. He was far from his best as the defending Champions crashed out of the tournament in the group stage for the first time in their history.
Many reactions trailed his decision to quit his international career as Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos said ‘there was no racism in the German national team’ and it’s ‘nonsense’ for him to quit at such age.
Leow also comments on the playmaker’s racism claim. He said nothing of such exist in his team that Ozil has no genuine reason for ending his international career.
However, according to Sport Bild, Leow paid a visit to the Emirates Stadium to convince the 29-year-old playmaker to rescind his decision but he was snubbed by the player.
The German media outlet claimed that the former Real Madrid star refused to welcome the head coach and he equally told him he didn’t want to see him at the Colney training ground anymore.
This might sound rude from Ozil but Joachim Leow hasn’t been there for the player during his hard times, instead, he chose to defend his employers rather than solving the crisis reported by the former Real Madrid star.
