The news was confirmed by a sports news outlet which is based in Turkey on Monday, July 11th, 2022. According to reports, the decision was taken following an outburst between the German and the interim coach of the club over his fitness.
That bust-up came with interim head coach Ismail Kartal after which he was not able to break into the team even under new manager Jorge Jesus, who has left him out of his squad. Ozil has not featured for the Turkish side since March 20th, 2022.
Jesus said Ozil's achievements will never be taken from him but the German will never play under him as long as he is the manager.
He had his time, his space,, he has a beautiful history in Turkey, no one can take it away from him. He is a well-known player around the world. But I will follow exactly what was the end of the Ozil era. The most important thing here is Fenerbahce and it is from there that I build my ideas and the players who come to work with me..
This situation seems to be a recurrence of what happened when the German was at Arsenal at he was frozen out of the first team under manager, Mikel Arteta. Ozil joined Fenerbahce during the January transfer window of 2021 where he score nine goals and registered three assists in 36 games.
