Mesut Özil hasn’t been so lucky. The photos him and fellow Germany international Īlkay Gündogan took with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan back in May were ill-advised to say the least, but it was an issue that should have been laid to rest long before the World Cup kicked off.

This letter is said to have contained a dialogue suggestion that was well received by Özil.
