Mesut Ozil’s agent has revealed the former Arsenal midfielder will move into eSports when his .ing days end as the Germany midfielder continues to be cast out by Fenerbahce.
The Turkish club removed Ozil from their first-team squad in the spring due to disciplinary reasons – with a return looking unlikely for the 33-year-old.
Fenerbahce head coach Jorge Jesus says the most important factor is the club itself, not .ers like Mesut Ozil.
“He will go more into eSports, . himself and maybe become an eSports athlete,” Dr Erkut Sogut told the Daily Telegraph.
“He’s really good, to be honest, at Fortnite and I think one day I wouldn’t be surprised if he is competing.
“He owns a team – M10 Esports – and he has .ers. He has a gaming house in Germany. He has football, like FIFA, and Fortnite.”
Back in March, Ozil was excluded from Fenerbahce’s first team after being substituted at half-time in a game at Konyaspor, despite captaining the side and having been one of their key .ers since moving to Istanbul in January 2021.

Ozil was a vital figure in attack for Ismail Kartal’s side last season, scoring nine goals and registering three assists in all competitions.
The Turkish club’s president, Ali Koc, had announced at the end of last year that Ozil was “unhappy” at the club due to a desire to . more, but revealed that manager Kartal was struggling to get the best out of the midfielder.
“Ozil wants to . more,” Koc said in November. “From now on, he needs to focus on his game and keep his commercial interests out of it. He needs to think about contributing to Fenerbahce.
“Our coach also needs to try to figure out how to get the most out of Ozil. T. is not a problem, despite what the media says. Mesut is unhappy because he does not . regularly.”
