Bayern Munich chief makes another verbal attack on Mesut Ozil

Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness has hammered Arsenal man Mesut Ozil again.

After last month claiming Ozil, who has now retired from Germany duty, “had been playing sh*t for years” the Bayern supremo has gone for the Gunners playmaker again.

Hoeness is convinced Ozil did not deserve to go to the World Cup with Germany, who were bundled out of the tournament in the group stage.

“We would have been spared the whole theatre,” Hoeness told Sky Sport Germany.

“Ozil should have been forced to make a statement. But leaving that without explanation was probably the biggest mistake ever.

“I’ve been watching the player for a long time and he’s a well-marketed product whose image is a lot better than he is, which is the only big blame for me.

“Had Low gone to Arsenal more often in London and looked at him properly, he probably would not have taken him for sporting reasons.

“It is a miracle that he is now captain at Arsenal.”

Last month  Ozil announced his surprise retirement from international football “while I have this feeling of racism and disrespect”.

The 29-year-old responded to his critics by releasing a series of tweets, explaining the circumstances surrounding him posing for a picture with controversial Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

However, some have not taken his defence well, including Bayern chief Hoeness.
