Former Arsenal Star Mesut Ozil Could Make Shock Return to Football

, Former Arsenal Star Mesut Ozil Could Make Shock Return to Football

Reports suggest that former Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is being considered for a surprising comeback to football just six months after retiring. German outlet Bild has revealed that Ozil is being lined up for a boardroom role as the general manager of the Turkish national team. The potential move comes after the Turkish team sacked their manager Stefan Kuntz following a 4-2 defeat to Japan. Turkish midfield legend Hamit Altintop, who brought Ozil in, is the current incumbent sporting director and Ozil could be his replacement.

Managerial Shake-up for Turkish National Team

The Turkish national team is reportedly looking to bring in former Germany manager Joachim Low as Kuntz's replacement. In addition, Ozil may be appointed to oversee preparations for the upcoming Euros and World Cup. Kuntz was sacked due to a series of poor results and a falling out with Turkey talisman Hakan Calhanoglou. Altintop's own job has been in danger since as early as June, and recent international results have only increased the pressure. A 1-1 draw with Armenia followed by a 4-2 loss to Japan puts Altintop's future in doubt.

A Surprise Move for Ozil

If Ozil were to return to football so soon after announcing his retirement in March, it would undoubtedly be a shock move. The midfielder most recently played for Istanbul Basaksehir after leaving Arsenal in 2020 to join Fenerbahce but injuries hindered his form. He joined Basaksehir in 2022 but made just seven appearances before retiring. Ozil addressed his retirement in a social media statement, expressing gratitude to his clubs and teammates and thanking his family and fans. It seems that Ozil's return to the football world may be happening sooner than expected.
