who was anArsenal
player who eventually left the club to join the Turkish Super Lig. Mesut Ozil had an agreement to terminate his contract with Arsenal and is currently in Turkey. The German playmaker is expected to sign for Fenerbahce in the coming days.
Podolski is happy that his former teammate is joining him in Turkey and is pleased to see him play again.
"I generally think with a player who is now in his sixth or seventh year with the club, to kick him completely out of the squad, that’s absolutely not okay,"
"He's shown his class on the pitch, he's never been negative towards his colleagues or the club. Arsenal as a club have not looked positive in this situation over the last months.
"I am delighted that Mesut will play for us in Turkey in the future. He is an asset to the league and at 32 years of age is still in his prime footballing age,"
the former Arsenal forward told Sport Bild.
"It happens again and again in the Süper Lig that great player names are presented by the club bosses in order to satisfy the fans."
