Germany's Mesut Özil is the winner of this year's Public Award at the German Football Ambassador awards. He speaks with DW about volunteering, life at Arsenal and the German national team.
Mesut Özil's first competitive game since quitting the Germany team ended in defeat as Arsenal fell to Manchester City in their Premier League opener. But at least he can start to get back to being just a footballer.
After stepping down from international duty, Mesut Özil has devoted himself to a new venture. Together with eSportsReputation, Özil has founded #teamozil: an eSports team on the search for talent. A smart move.
For days now, German football fans have been wondering when Mesut Özil is finally going to break his silence on the Erdogan affair. Given his history, it's not bound to be any time soon.
Toni Kroos had strong words for Mesut Özil, saying that the manner of his departure was "out of order." He also has said that he will carry on playing for Germany after the shock early exit from the World Cup.
