I thought, when the two met [Germany president Frank-Walter] Steinmeier, that we could concentrate on the World Cup.“This theme has also cost strength. For me, it was clear that I selected Mesut Ozil for sporting reasons.“Why I have not said something on this incident so far: It was like that his advisor called me late in the afternoon on Sunday.“He has informed me that Mesut will publish the third part of his statement.Top 5 Bundesliga players to watch during the weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Bundesliga’s Top 5 players to watch next weekend.The German…“The player himself did not call me. In the past, there have always been good discussions with players in such cases. He has chosen this path, I have to accept that.“There never was a kind of racism. Throughout the time I was at the DFB, there has never been racist comments in our team.“Mesut and Ilkay have always identified with the values of the national team.”Having to leave the World Cup already after the group stage hurts so much. We just weren’t good enough.

But I clearly reject the racism accusation.”Germany and Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger sympathised with his former team-mate.“What I don’t understand in this whole discussion is why some people are discussing whether there is racism within the national team,” he said.“Mesut himself never said that in one sentence! I think it’s extremely sad how this has developed.”last_img
