German star Mesut Ozil has played only 408 minutes since March 7, 2020, and yesterday’s injury came to add insult to injury to his football career.
After being excluded from Arsenal’s squad for many months, he joined Fenerbahce in the winter season with Turkey’s Fenerbahce, hoping that it would be a new start for him in the green rectangle.
But it seems that his start will be delayed after suffering a severe injury that forced him to leave the stadium of the Fenerbahce match with Antalya Sport in the 67th minute, and the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
The Turkish Al-Sabah newspaper reported that the initial medical examinations that the German star underwent confirmed his suffering from a partial tear in the inner and outer lateral ligaments of the ankle, and severe swelling of the inner and outer ankle bones, and he is expected to be absent from the stadiums between 4 and 6 weeks.
Ozil had joined Fenerbahce’s ranks during the last winter transfer market from Arsenal, with a 3-and-a-year contract.
