Ozil and Gundogan to face problems with fans after meeting Erdogan

Germany national team head coach Joachim Low has warned Ilkay Gundogan and Mesut Ozil that they will face rough criticism by fans because of their meeting with Turkey president Erdogan.

Arsenal and Manchester City stars have met Turkish president in London a month ago. The picture taken from the meeting has made fans anxious about them.

Germany national team and Bayern Munich legend Stefan Effenberg insists two players should not be included in the final squad.

“My job is to prepare players for the matches. But they may probably hear whistles from fans on Sunday.” Low said

“He (Gundogan) was dejected after hearing whistles in the last match. But last 3 days of rest were good for him” he added.
