Jerome Boateng believe that Mesuit Ozil has been ignored by former German teammates

Bayern Munich defender, Jerome Boateng claims that Arsenal midfielder Mesuit Ozil has been ignored by former German teammates. According to Boateng, some players who backed the midfielder in his days with the national team failed to stand by him after he was criticized when he took a picture with Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan ahead of the World Cup in Russia.

Ozil retired from international football citing racism and disrespect as reasons for quitting. Ozil believes afterwards that I am German when we win, but I am an immigrant when we lose. While teammates like Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller have criticised the comment, Jerome Boateng has backed up the midfielder.

Boateng told Suddeutsche Zeitung: Where were the teammates who thanked Mesut? Apparently, they did not dare to make any comments because they thought it would not go down well with the Germany fans.
Boateng added that Germans should still be grateful to the former World Cup winner. It's not about that photo. It's about a great player who has won the World Cup with us. Who has won a lot of caps, who changed German football a bit. A No. 10 with a migratory background. You must thank him.
