Toni Kroos has hit out again at former Germany teammate Mesut Ozil amid claims of racism within the country’s football federation.
Ozil announced that he would no longer play for Germany as long as he felt a victim of persecution from within in July.
Germany have been tripping over themselves to deny racism within the team thereafter, thus completely missing and trivialising Ozil’s actual point.
The Arsenal midfielder was on the agenda for national team manager Joachim Low as Germany emerge from their World Cup disaster and embark on a UEFA Nations League campaign.
“He’s said he’s going to step down. Are there any questions open?” said an exasperated Low when asked if Ozil could one day return.
“I don’t know why we should keep talking about it. He was part of the team for a long time but not any more, for this team it’s over and he’s not part of our thoughts any more.”
