Mesut Ozil had not made his debut in Arsenal colors still, but the controversies are already pouring in from all sides.
Earlier this week, according to many Spanish newspapers, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez criticized Ozil by raising question marks over the player’s professionalism.
Florentino Perez said,
“He wasn’t a good professional and was obsessed with women and nightlife”.
Mesut Ozil and his family seems to terribly upset over Perez’s public stunt against the former Real Madrid man. Now adding more fuel to the fire, Mesut Ozil’s father, Mustafa has threatened to take legal actions against Perez (Real Madrid).
He also claimed that Real Madrid are using his son as a scapegoat to win back fans who are upset at the management for selling Ozil.
Mustafa said (to Bild),
“Just because a man earns a lot of money, doesn’t mean he’s a man of honour,”
“And Perez is no man of honour.”
“Mesut is supposed to be the scapegoat now and I’m the greedy father. A put-up game. We will defend ourselves legally.”
“If Mesut had an unprofessional life in Madrid, then why did he always play? They want to blame him now, because the fans and team-mates are angry.”
Meanwhile Ozil is getting ready to make his Arsenal debut against Sunderland today.
