Germany's Mezut Ozil’s Father Takes Son To Court

Mesut Özil’s father Mustafa Özil filed a lawsuit against the Arsenal star according to German newspaper Express.

Case 2b = 242/13 concerned a family dispute between Mustafa and his son. Özil’s father claimed € 600,000 commission from an advertising contract and €30,000 commission from a deal with a watch company had not been paid.

The bizarre story centres around the time when Mustafa represented his son as chief executive officer of Özil’s sports agency – Özil Marketing GmbH.

The management company also represent FC Koln youth players Barış Sarıkaya and Anıl Çapkın both born in Germany to Turkish parents.

The dispute had a happy ending as father and son patched things up and agreed to pull out of the lawsuit.

Özil recently replaced his father with his sibling Mutlu Özil as chief executive officer of his sports agency.

The 25-year-old also employs media consultant Roland Eitel and Haimspel, an agency which looks after his Facebook page.

The Arsenal star also recently joined his teammate Jack Wilshere on the books of Wasserman Media Group headed by Fahri Ecvet.
