Germany boss Joachim Low and general manager Oliver Bierhoff were barred from Arsenal training center as they tried to make contact with Mesut Ozil,according to German newspaper Bild
Both Low and Bierhoff attended FIFA’s The Best awards in London at the weekend and had hoped to talk to Mesut Ozil who retired from the German national team in July and cited racism in the German FA.
Last month, Low said he had tried to make contact with Ozil but his calls were not returned.
Having informed Arsenal of their visit, Low and Bierhoff had hoped to meet with Ozil at the Colney training ground on Monday, but Bild reported that they were not allowed to attend “at the behest of Arsenal coach Umai Emery.”
Bierhoff said: “We would have loved to talk to Mesut. But we must accept that currently he does not want that talk.”
