Quotes by Mesut ÖzilImage-Source: DFB

I am very, very proud I am also Turkish and both of my parents are from Turkey. I was born in Germany and grew up there. By playing football, I learned my different cultures, and that is an advantage if you grow up as a person. You get a different view on certain things. I am very, very thankful I was able to pick the best from many cultures.

I spent more time in Spane than in Turkey - does that make me a German-Turkish Spaniard or a Spanisch-German Turk? Why do we always think in borders? I want to be a footballer - football is international and not about where people come from.
