The former German football international Mesut Özil has demanded more respect for its former Arsenal colleagues Bukayo Saka. He had spotted the decisive penalty for England in the EM final against Italy.
«In a final, as the last one to take responsibility for a whole nation, as a young player - respect," said Özil in the interview the British station Sky Sports News. "Not many players would trust himself."
Saka got him very well, said the Fenerbahce professional. Özil had confessed in London to the Gunners by January. He criticized that the 19-year-old SAKA was insulted racist after his misty shot, but noted a little hope that the situation improves in the future.
"There will always be people who make racist insults and make people different backgrounds and skin colors for scapegoat," said the 32-year-old. "We should focus more on positive messages that strengthen players."
Özil had resigned from the German national team in Russia in 2018 after the messaging World Cup in Russia and had raised racism allegations. However, because of its proximity to the Turkish President Erdogan, he stood even in the criticism.
