Mesut Ozil’s Adidas split not due to controversial decisions – Agent
Reports in Germany on Wednesday morning claimed the 31-year-old Arsenal attacking midfielder has been “dumped” by Adidas amid concerns over his controversial decisions and the financial impact of the coronavirus on the German sportswear company.
The seven-year deal, signed in 2013, saw him switch from Adidas’ rival, Nike. Dr Erkut said he has no reason to panic that he can get any deal any time because of is fame.
Ozil’s agent Dr. Erkut Sogut told ESPN.”He could sign another deal tomorrow,” “Nobody has the reach he has in the Premier League so you can imagine what attraction he has for many boots brands.
“Adidas knew he was pushing his own thing. He has been doing it on Twitter lately so it is now time to build his own brand while he is still actively playing.
“That is unique in football. Some players reach the end of their career and then try to build a brand but we think that is too late.
“For example, years ago, we tested caps, t-shirts and other lines at a very small level which all sold out in an hour.
“They were just test versions because we weren’t allowed to do more due to the agreement with Adidas. But we know the interest is there.
“You can either work with these brands for life like David Beckham or Zinedine Zidane or you build your own brand, using the time when you are still actively playing to promote things.”
Mesut Ozil will be part of the Squad that will be travelling to Etihad when they face Manchester City on June 17 when the Premier league return.
