Arsenal Star Mezut Ozil has revealed that he has no regrets joining the club despite being left out of the team since March.
Ozil was left out of Arsenal’s 25-man Premier League and Europa League squads this season.
His contract is set to expire in the summer and he has been linked with a move to Turkish side Fenerbahce.
“Every German-Turkish person supports a Turkish team when they grow up in Germany”. And mine was Fenerbahce.
Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country.
He said he will definitely continue his playing career when he leaves Arsenal, adding: “There are two countries I want to play football in before I retire: Turkey and USA. If I went to Turkey, I could only go to Fenerbahce.”
Ozil joined Arsenal in a £42.4m move from Real Madrid in 2013 and has scored 44 goals in 254 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners.
Asked if he had ever enjoyed playing for Arsenal, Ozil replied: “Of course.
There have been many ups and downs so far, but all in all I’ve never regretted my decision to join Arsenal.
“And, to be honest, the last couple of games before the corona break in February and March 2020 made really a lot [of] fun.
“But after the break things unfortunately changed.”
