I have been unable to reach Mesut Ozil since retirement/racism saga-Joachim Low.

Head Coach of the German National team Joachim Low says he has been unable to communicate  with Arsenal Playmaker Mesut  Ozil  since the German announced his retirement  from National team  duties.

Ozil  and Low won the World Cup with Germany together in 2014.

Germany suffered a devastating  group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup in Russia with Mesut Ozil  getting criticism  from every angle starting from when he took a picture with Turkey President  Erdogan.

Speaking to journalists  about the Mesut  Ozil  issue,  Joachim  Low said:

His agent called me and told me that Mesut would announce his retirement”.

“The player himself did not call me. Ozil has chosen a different path and until this moment, he has not called me- Joachim Low

Joachim  Low also accepted that he as Manager of the German National team underestimated  the situation:

“I have tried by phone and text message but I have not been able to reach him. I have to accept that, I probably underestimated the whole situation”

“The topic has taken a lot of energy, but it should not be an alibi. The statement from Ozil was perhaps a bit hasty. There has never an approach of racism in our team”- Joachim  Low.
