Ozil's Agent: 'Mesut Will Quit Football To Become A Pro Gamer'
Mesut Ozil could become a professional gamer if he struggles to nail a regular spot in Fenerbahce's first-team.
Following a public fall-out with manager Ismail Kartal, the former Arsenal star has not played for the Istanbul side since March.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Ozil's agent Dr. Erkut Sogat said: "I think he will not play football in any other club any more. I can't see that – it will be Fenerbahce and that’s it.
"He will go more into esports, play himself and maybe become an esports athlete.
"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."
The 33-year-old lifted the World Cup with Germany in 2014 and left Arsenal six years later.
In 36 appearances for Fenerbahce since 2020, Ozil has scored eight goals so far.
