After Germany’s Mesut Ozil announced his international retirement, none of the German players expressed their opinion on the saga. However, Ozil’s ex-teammate and Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has finally broken his silence to speak about the issue.

Muller believes the hypocritical media has made a mess out of everything and the outsiders fired up the whole discussion.

Muller said in a press conference ahead of Sunday’s friendly clash with Manchester United,

“The whole discussion was fired up by outsiders. Of course, the protagonists of that matter acted a little bit, unfortunately, both the executives of the DFB and the players. But, actually, this debate is hypocritical from the media’s side. Because of the debate, the media gets circulation.”

Thomas Muller kept blaming the media and also revealed the German football federation wanted to calm the situation.

“The DFB wanted to have peace with it, calm it, but the media always asked, again and again. The discussion was made bigger than it was and now you see what you get from that. For the sales numbers, of course, this is great, because now you still get to ask about it.”

Thomas Muller also made a strong statement stating racism was never an issue inside the national team.

“For us players, I think the whole issue never was as big as it was made out to be, but of course we got confronted by it, and we still do. So now we finally should end that debate and concentrate on football, because racism inside the national team never was an issue.”

After the shock group stage exit in the FIFA World Cup 2018, Mesut Ozil decided not to represent Germany any more and also released a lengthy statement where he stated he wouldn’t tolerate racism any more.
