Agent claims ex-Arsenal star Ozil staying at Fenerbahce despite exclusion

Mesut Ozil has no plans to leave Fenerbahce, according to his agent.

The former Arsenal has been excluded from the Fener squad indefinitely.

However, his agent Erkut Sogut insists Ozil remain a Fenerbahce player until the end of his contract in 2024.

"Mesut did not want to make it difficult in the current environment. Since he does not want to leave Ozan on his own, he trains with him," Sogut told reporters, via Fanatik.

"That's what makes sense right now because of the sad events with the coach

"Such events are always sad. An unpleasant process has begun for both sides. The important thing is to stay calm and wait for the final decision.

"I say this clearly here. Mesut will not go anywhere, and he certainly has no plans to leave. He will continue here as a Fenerbahce player for two more years until the end of his contract.

"He signed Fenerbahce for three-and-a-half years, six months of which he played for free. From January to the end of the season, he didn't even make any money.

"Mesut did not go out and denigrate anyone. What happened there will stay there. If his punishment comes, it will be taken and it will end."
