Ex-Arsenal midfielder Ozil insists he's staying with Fenerbahce


Former Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil expects to continue with Fenerbahce next season.

Ozil - who still has two years remaining on his contract - hasn't featured for Fenerbahce since he was suspended and has subsequently missed eight league games.

The former Arsenal midfielder was involved in a verbal altercation with manager Ismail Kartal during their victory against Konyaspor and has been frozen out of the squad ever since.

Ozil has taken to Twitter to share his thoughts on the situation and commit his future to Fenerbahce.

"Recently, I have had to make a statement regarding the allegations made about my career," tweeted Ozil on Tuesday. "I had completed my career goal by signing a 3.5-year contract with Fenerbahce, my childhood love, without even getting paid for the first 6 months.

"I repeat with emphasis; I will not end my career in a team other than Fenerbahce. For the duration of my contract, my only goal is to sweat our Cubuklu jersey. This decision is very clear and final.

"As per the requirements of professional life, if our management takes a decision about me, I will only respect this attitude. I will work hard and always keep myself ready. As I always say, the main thing is Fenerbahce. With my love and respect to the great Fenerbahce fans."
