Turkey president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has given his support to Mesut Ozil and says the "racist attitude" shown towards the player is not acceptable.
The midfielder brought his worldwide career to an abrupt over the weekend, citing what he called "racism and disrespect" for his Turkish roots and claiming he had been made a scapegoat for the team's World Cup failures after a controversial meeting with Turkish leader Erdogan in May.
He added that Ozil's critics "could not stomach" the photograph of the soccer star and Erdogan that prompted criticism ahead of the World Cup.
Former Bayern Munich and Germany midfielder Lothar Matthaus has told ESPN FC that Mesut Ozil will not be missed following his worldwide retirement, adding "his time to play in the national team is over" based on his recent performances.

Speaking to reporters at parliament on Tuesday, Erdogan said that Ozil's approach had been "admirable" and that the player had "given his all" for the German national team.

It said: "We play and live together with our different family roots, our religions and cultures".
Turkish lawmaker and former footballer Alpay Ozalan supported the stance Germany's Mesut Ozil took against racism.
"Whether publicly or not, the player must be protected against messages of discrimination and hatred".
