Özil shuffles his head in the 77th minute
| Reading time: 2 minutes
The one midfield star was not allowed, the other did not seem to want. Once again Mesut Özil is disappointed in an important match. How it is done, showed him his counterpart in the Chelsea jersey.
es ran the 77th minute when coach Unai Emery showed mercy. The "10" flashed on the scoreboard, which was a salvation for Mesut Özil. The world champion of 2014 and now retired national team then sneaked off with a hanging head.
Of course, at the score of 1: 4 – at the same time the final score – against a dominating in the second half Chelsea London nothing more. Nevertheless, this attitude was once again symbolic of Mesut Özil in a big game. No rearing up, no entrainment. Also saw the RTL commentator duo Marco Hagemann and Steffen friend so: "In passage two not so noticeable," was still gently printed by Hagemann. Friend, European champion in 1996, was already clearer: "A player of his quality needs to share. Mesut had no offensive action. But that's exactly what he's on the field for. That's too little for me. "
Hazard shows how to do it
How it is done, Özil was shown by his counterpart. Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard was involved in three of the four, scoring two goals himself. That may have been his last game for the Blues, as Real Madrid are said to be very interested in signing the Belgian.
The Royal, where Mesut Özil himself once shone. Of the shine is at the 30-year-old, however, not much left. The statistics in the Euro League final underlined this: Only 40 ball contacts, only 26 arrived basses – and a duel rate of 25 percent. Much more formative than the already scary values: The shuffling finish.
