Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness has slammed Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil after he announced his retirement from the German national team on Sunday evening.
The 29-year-old was heavily criticised after the country’s early exit at the just concluded FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia promoting him to resign from the team as he cited racism.
Germany finished bottom of Group F behind South Korea, Mexico and Sweden in what is one of the four-time world champions’ worst performances at the tournament.
In his reaction to Ozil’s retirement, Hoeness said: “I am glad that this scare is now over. He had been playing sh*t for years. He last won a tackle before the 2014 World Cup & now he & his sh*tty performances hide beyond this picture.”
“Whenever we [Bayern] played against Arsenal, we played over him because we knew that was their weak point. His 35 million follower boys – that don’t exist in the real world – are convinced he has played sublimely when he completes a cross pass.” He concluded.
