Ozil to move into eSports after retiring, says agent

 Mesut Ozil's agent has claimed the former Arsenal midfielder will move into eSports when his playing days end as the Germany midfielder continues to be cast out by Fenerbahce.

The Turkish club removed Ozil from their first-team squad in the spring due to disciplinary reasons - with a return looking unlikely for the 33-year-old.

"He will go more into eSports, play himself and maybe become an eSports athlete," Dr Erkut Sogut told the Daily Telegraph.

"He's really good, to be honest, at Fortnite and I think one day I wouldn't be surprised if he is competing.

"He owns a team - M10 Esports - and he has players. He has a gaming house in Germany. He has football, like FIFA, and Fortnite."

Back in March, Ozil was excluded from Fenerbahce's first team after being substituted at half-time in a game at Konyaspor, despite captaining the side and having been one of their key players since moving to Istanbul in January 2021.
