    You should frekkin demand that the players do more conditioning and studying

    Everybody else works 8hours or more a day let these frekkin entitled players do that to!

    Horrible. Such a likeable person yet it looks like he misses basic concepts.

    Has Per Mertesacker never experienced a racism in the national team?

    Wait what?

    To be fair I have never experienced racism or discrimination in the German national team either.

    I'm just shocked here. How can a white male with the most German name not have experienced a racism before?

    Am I being punked or what?

    From what I've gathered Özil never said he experienced it from team mates but outside forces. Public, media and indirectly from higher ups.

    Yup, obviously. That should be clear to anyone who read Mesut’s statement. I guess they are pushing the no racism within the national team itself narritive, ignoring what Mesut really said. Losing respect for all the ignorant and uninformed responses, even from Per.

    I don't think he is "getting in on" anything to be honest. What he sees, and what Mesut experiences does not need to be the same thing.

    The perspective is not mandatorily the same.

    you guys are reading too much, he just said he never experienced racism during his time in NT and surprised with Özil's accusation. Far different from what Kroos or Hoeness said

    Obviously he meant as a third party he hasnt witnessed any

    What a piss poor comment from Per. You'd think with his personality he would reflect and offer some better judgement.

    Özil never said he was a victim of racism within German NT, it was people aroudn German NT, some media lackeys and most of German public that have scapegoated him for the catastrophic World Cup.

    All while brushing the complete disastrous performances of certain blue-eyed Germans in NT.

    Yeah all these statements from his teammates are convincing me more in favour of Özil than otherwise.

    I'm a bit astounded at Per's comments. He is an intelligent individual and has no more connection to the DFB. He knows exactly what Mesut's statement is saying. That's disappointing.

    Honestly starting to seem like a lot happens behind the scenes which we will never be privy too. But don't let this start another tinfoil hat club myth.

    Given that he's taken on the academy role I think it's clear he wants to continue working in football. I don't think heading up the academy is necessarily the end goal of any ambitious person. Perhaps he wants a position in the DFB down the road and is therefore toeing the company line so as not to burn his bridges.
