Fenerbahce president Ali Koc raps Ozil: Forget your commercial interests

Former Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been urged to set aside his commercial pursuits by Fenerbahce president Ali Koc.

It has been far from plain sailing for the 33-year-old who has not been a regular in the team this season and Koc says Ozil needs to keep his focus on the pitch rather than off it.

"Since the start of this season, Mesut Ozil has been compared to Robin van Persie (in terms of his status at Fenerbahce)," Koc told Fernebache TV.

"Ozil wants to play more. From now on, he needs to focus on his game and keep his commercial interests out of it. He needs to think about contributing to Fenerbahce.

"Our coach also needs to try to figure out how to get the most out of Ozil. There is not a problem, despite what the media says. Mesut is unhappy because he does not play regularly."
