Mesut Ozil’s agent aims dig at Aubameyang over Chelsea move

Mesut Ozil’s agent Erkut Sogut has aimed a dig at former Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over his move to Chelsea in the summer.

Aubameyang left Arsenal in controversial circumstances in the January transfer window after he fell out with Mikel Arteta and was stripped of the club’s captaincy over disciplinary issues.

The 33-year-old, who scored 92 goals in 163 matches for Arsenal, moved to Barcelona but after just six months he returned to thr Premier League by joining Chelsea.

Aubameyang filmed an interview with A Jewellers on their YouTube channel after leaving Arsenal for Barcelona – which was only released last month – in which he aimed several digs at Arteta after their falling out.

The Gabon international has scored three goals across his first 10 appearances for Chelsea and Ozil’s agent Sogut has now aimed a dig at the striker.

‘[Mesut Ozil] could never play for another English club, he’s not like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang,’ Sogut told Tribal Football.

‘He loved his time at Arsenal is still in contact with a lot of players, not least Bukayo Saka, they have a special relationship.’

Ozil left the Emirates in 2021 after an eight-year spell at Arsenal and is currently playing for Istanbul Basaksehir in Turkey.

He joined the Gunners from Real Madrid for around £42.5m back in 2013 and for a while was an outstanding player – winning three FA Cups during his time at the club.

But, it all went sour in the latter part of his stay in north London as he eventually left for Turkish side Fenerbahce.

Ozil failed to make any impact there and was once again frozen out before he eventually joined Istanbul Basaksehir.

In July, Arsenal’s technical director Edu slammed the club’s former big-money flops for ‘killing’ the club. Arsenal were forced to pay off Ozil and Aubameyang, who were on long contacts with huge wages.
