Commentary on Mesut Özil and the Gray Wolves: Deeply regrettable – Sport

With a new tattoo, Mesut Özil apparently supports the right-wing extremist “Grey Wolves”. In doing so, he finally turns his back on his home country – and on a lot of people for whom he was once a role model.

If another picture was needed that documents the break between Mesut Özil and his former homeland, then this was shared on the Instagram account of a Turkish fitness trainer over the weekend: Özil, born and raised in Gelsenkirchen, presents his abdominal muscles, which are impressive for a football professional who retired half a year ago. What can also be seen is a confession pierced under the skin: Özil has had a howling wolf and three crescents tattooed on his chest.
