Fenerbahçe: An Özil move to LA could prevent that

Is Mesut Özil (33) staying now?!

Actually, the days of the world champion at Fenerbahçe Istanbul seemed numbered. In fact! Because Özil is fighting for his future in Turkey. Chief reporter Matthias Marburg reveals this to moderator Chris Höb in “Stammplatz”, the daily football podcast from BILD.

Marburg: “On April 18, Özil’s advisor flew to Turkey to talk to Fener President Ali Koç about Özil’s future. But Koç is currently abroad.”

The meeting should still take place in the next few days. Because Özil (contract runs until 2024) would like to continue playing for Fener and attack again.

Whether he is allowed to do that may depend on the man with whom Mesut Özil celebrated the greatest success of his career: world champion coach Jogi Löw!

Marburg: “Özil only gets another chance at Fenerbahçe if the new coach starts planning with him in the summer. Turkish media have often reported Löw as perfect as the new Fener coach. According to our information, however, it is far from that.”

If the next Fener coach also has no use for the playmaker, according to Marburg, the probability of a move to LA is “70 to 80 percent”. In the new episode “Stammplatz”, Marburg also reveals why Özil will probably never play in the Bundesliga again.
