He said in Ankara it's "truly unacceptable that a young man who has given everything to the German national team and has contributed to its success is facing such a racist attitude because of his religion".

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has finally made a comment about the decision made by his player and says that they are ready to support the German worldwide in this time where he has been hurt by his country which he says that he has given all up until now.

Ozil was also criticised for meeting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May, when the pair were photographed holding up an Arsenal shirt, and he has yet to comment on his withdrawal since he announced it through social media.

When Emery was asked about the player's mental state going into the new season, the coach said: "I'm sure he's going to have a great season with us. I´m looking at every player and I think Mesut, he has here the respect of every player". "We're a family and we'll offer him our full support".

A benefit of Germany's group stage exit at the World Cup has been Ozil joining up with his teammates in Singapore for their preseason games against Atletico Madrid and PSG.

Ozil also blamed the German Football Federation (DFB) for failing to defend him against his most strident critics.
