Former German star says the FA should have kicked out Özil and Gundogan

Former Fiorentina and Bayern Munich star Steffan Effenberg compared his expulsion in the 1994 World Cup to the current situation in the German National Team.

The former German international has made it clear that he disagrees with the decision by his country’s federation not to expel Mesut Özil and Ilkay Gundogan for their recent and controversial meeting with the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, according to AS.

“When you put everything on your values like those the DFB always transmit, the only decision is to get rid of the two players. With me and with Uli Stein they did not react in the same way and I cannot see a defining line,” Effenberg said in an interview with T-Online.
