Another damper for Mesut Özil (31). The football professional had signed a contract with the sports brand Adidas in 2013. The striker and the company had worked together for seven years, and up to 25 million euros in fees were said to have been discussed. However, after two years ago Mercedes no longer wanted to work with him as a brand ambassador, it is now known: Adidas also has the contract with Mesut phase out!
How picture reported, the cooperation is over at the end of the current season. The exact background is not known – neither the Arsenal kicker nor the company want to comment on it. A spokesman for Adidas only said: “Contract talks are generally not publicly commented on at Adidas.” But the newspaper wants to know that the sporting goods manufacturer wants to save money because of the current situation and that the image of the 31-year-old also influenced the decision.
Indeed had Mesut caused a scandal two years ago. Before the World Cup, he posed for a controversial photo together with the controversial Turkish ruler Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (66) and had been criticized by many. After the World Cup bankruptcy and the fuss about his person, the ball talent then decided to leave the national team – but not without publicly settling accounts with the DFB and its sponsors.
