‘People Have Been Trying To Destroy Me’ : Mesut Ozil Laments

Published

on

Arsenal midfielder, Mesut Ozil has defended why he refused to join his teammates to take a pay cut amid the Coronavirus pandemic despite earning a mammoth £350,000 per week salary.

In April, members of the Gunners’ playing staff and coaching team had agreed to a 12.5 percent pay cut to support the club during a financially unstable time caused by the Covid-19 disease but Ozil was one of those that decided against a wage cut.

Ozil, who has struggled for game time under new manager Mikel Arteta, in defense of his action, says people are trying to destroy his name after he attracted criticism for his decision not to lower his salary.

According to Ozil, there were many unanswered questions and that he had a right to “know everything” regarding Arsenal’s use of the finances.

Ozil also said he had significant commitments to his family and charities to also consider before making his decision.

He told the Athletic: “As players, we all wanted to contribute. But we needed more information and many questions were unanswered.

“Everyone was fine with a deferral while there was so much uncertainty – I would have been OK to take a bigger share – and then a cut if required, once the football and financial outlook was clearer. But we were rushed into it without proper consultation.

“For anyone in this situation, you have a right to know everything, to understand why it is happening and where the money is going. But we didn’t get enough details, we just had to give a decision. It was far too quick for something so important and there was a lot of pressure.

“This was not fair, especially for the young guys, and I refused. I had a baby at home and have commitments to my family here, in Turkey and in Germany – to my charities, too, and also a new project we started to support people in London that was from the heart and not for publicity.

“People who know me know exactly how generous I am and, as far as I’m aware, I was not the only player who rejected the cut in the end, but only my name came out.

“I guess that’s because it is me and people have been trying for two years to destroy me, to make me unhappy, to push an agenda they hope will turn the supporters against me and paint a picture that is not true.

“Possibly the decision affected my chances on the pitch, I don’t know. But I’m not afraid to stand up for what I feel is right – and when you see what has happened now with the jobs, maybe I was.”

Ibrah One in a post on social media has disclosed what he would have done in his term of office if he were to be an African President.

According to the Young Ghanaian millionaire, Ibrahim Dauda, famed as Ibrah One, his number one priority will be for him to legalize internet fraud.

[Internet fraud is the use of Internet services or software with Internet access to defraud victims or to otherwise take advantage of them]

This flagship policy by Ibra One in agreement with his statements is due to the fact he thinks white people are stupid and greedy and thus must be scammed.

His initiative, if he were an African President will seek to level the gap between those at the top and the ordinary citizen.
