Ozil makes his Fenerbahce’s debut


Germany’s Mesut Ozil has made his debut as a Fenerbahce player after almost a year-332 days- he has not been featured on the pitch.

The last match he was paraded to play with his former club, Arsenal was against David Moyes’s West Ham in the 2019/20 campaign, the London side won the Hammers, 1-0

Since that period, he has not featured in any game for the Gunners as there has been a rift between the German playmaker and Mikel Arteta at Emirates before he left for Turkey last month

The former Real Madrid midfielder only played for thirteen minutes in his new club’s tie with Hatayspor, he started from the bench before he came as a substitute for Mame Thiam.

He was involved  in the second goal that gave Erol Bulut’s men the victory against Hataspor, 2-1 it went at the encounter

“Arsenal is a club of class and prestige, something that I felt every time I walked on to the pitch,” Ozil said in an  letter to the Arsenal fans after leaving the club last month

He shared his joy on Twitter after his debut

“Overwhelming feeling to have made my debut for @Fenerbahce_EN. And congrats to the whole squad – 3 crucial points”. He tweeted.

Ozil will be hoping to get a starting shirt with the league leaders against Turkish giants Galatasaray next Saturday
