Ozil’s dad slams Real Madrid president Perez

Posted on September 12, 2013 by admin

Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, has certainly had a busy summer, especially in the transfer market. As well as selling or releasing a number of players, including Albiol, Callejon and Higuain to Napoli in Italy’s Serie A, Kaka back to his former club AC Milan and the big one, Mesut Ozil, the club has spent big again.

The three big names of Gareth Bale, Isco and Illarramendi have grabbed the headlines, but there have still been grumbling among the Madridistas. A poll revealed that the fans thought it was a big mistake to sell the German international midfielder to Arsenal, and Perez responded by revealing that the club was concerned that the 24-year old’s party lifestyle and obsession with beautiful women was interfering with his football career.

Those statements have not gone down well with Ozil’s father Mustafa, who is also his agent. Ozil senior has hit back at Perez, claiming that the club president is only trying to deflect criticism away from his own decisions. He pulled no punches and even suggested they could settle the matter in court.

He told Bild, “The fact that someone earns a lot of money does not automatically make them a man of honour, and Florentino Perez is not a man of honour.

“He wants to turn Mesut into a scapegoat and show me as an ambitious parent, only after money. He is playing with marked cards and I will defend us in court.

“If Mesut had the life they are saying, I wonder why he was always in the starting line up. Now you want to destroy the image of Mesut because the fans and some of his team mates are pissed off with your sale.”

To be honest, Perez should not be trying to slur the name of Ozil, whether it is true or not. He was a good player for the club while he was here and the current players and staff need to hust move on. Madrid fans should be thinking about the future, and the longer this petty and pointless row goes on, it does nobody at the club any good.
