Media: German football legend considers running for office in Turkey

April 10, 2023



(RT)

Mesut Ozil is rumored to be running for election in Türkiye next month, but his name has since been deleted from a list of candidates published by local outlets. Ozil retired from professional football in March due to long-term injuries, and Turkish media began running reports suggesting he would run for parliament from his hometown of Zonguldak. Erdogan has been close to Ozil for years, with the president acting as best man at his 2019 wedding. Polls open in Turkey in little over a month and Erdogan is seeking a third term in office.
