Mesut Ozil Ends 18-Month Goal Drought with First Goal for Boyhood Club Fenerbahce
- Mesut Ozil was frustrated out of Premier League club Arsenal back in 2020 and his last goal was in February, the same year
- The mercurial German midfielder has finally scored for boyhood club Fenerbahce, ending an 18-month goal drought
- Ozil’s first goal in the Turkish Super Lig was a thing of beauty having bundled the ball over to grab all three points for his side
German midfielder Mesut Ozil found the back of the net for Fenerbahce for the first time since joining the Turkish outfit last year, Mirror reports.
The mercurial midfielder scored his first Super Lig goal in their fixture away at Demirspor on Sunday, August 15.
Ozil left Arsenal in the summer of 2020 and has been unable to replicate his form with the Turkish club.
However, after months of waiting, the former Real Madrid star has finally opened his goal basket for Fenerbahce.
Ozil is famous for his deft touches and supreme flair, and his goal was a thing of beauty having bundled the ball over to grab all three points for his side in their season opener.
His last professional goal dates back to February 2020 which came when Arsenal thrashed Newcastle 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium.
During his time in England, the Germain star made the headlines due to his creative skills.
But on the flip side, he occasionally received subtle social media shots and behind-the-scenes fall-outs.
Though Ozil's move to Fenerbahce was originally greeted with optimism from the player himself and fans alike, it quickly turned into a nightmare.
He will now be hoping to continue his newfound momentum into the new season.
