Football Played with Portuguese at Real Madrid
Mesut Ozil has answered a number of questions asked by his followers on social media, with one of the main talking points being his opinion on who is best out of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Ozil was quick to talk about the two players differences, but he backed his ex-Real Madrid teammate.
“Messi has proven to be one of the best in Spain, but Cristiano was the best in every country he has played in,” Ozil commented.

Ozil was also asked about Sergio Ramos and whether he is the best defender in the world.
“He has been world class for over a decade and has become a great leader. His ambition and desire to win is amazing, and I would say he is the best defender of my generation,” Ozil stated.
The Arsenal midfielder, who has been surrounded by constant rumours regarding his future at the London club, seems as though he is edging closer to an exit, with Fenerbahce said to be interested in his services.
Ozil‘s contract with the Gunners ends in June and he has stated that he wants to continue playing football after Arsenal.
“I’m sure I will continue playing. There are two countries where I would like to play: Turkey and the United States,” Ozil noted.
“If I did it in Turkey, it would only be for Fenerbahce. They were the team I supported when I was a child; every Turkish person who grows up in Germany follows a Turkish team too, and Fenerbahce are like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country.”
Another controversial issue was Ozil‘s departure from the German national team, however he was quick to deny that he had any regrets.
“I have great memories of playing for the German national team. We won the World Cup in 2014 and I was part of a great era for German football, I have no regrets playing for them.” Ozil wrote.
“Much has been said about how I finished, but I do not regret my decision.”
