Presenting their superstar transfer Mesut Ozil to the media, Istanbul side Fenerbahce on Wednesday held a signing ceremony for their high-profile recruit.
Axar.az reports that Ozil, 32, said it was a dream for him to play for the Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce and thanked everyone at the club, adding that he has been supporting Fenerbahce since he was just a boy.
He said Nigerian Jay-Jay Okocha was one of the favorite footballers from Fenerbahce’s history and on the current squad praised the play of Greek midfielder Dimitris Polkas.
Asked about returning to the German national team, Ozil – German-born but with Turkish roots – said: "I wish success to the German national team but will never play for them again."
Ozil helped Germany win the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. In 2018, he quit the national team, citing "racism and disrespect."
