Mesut Ozil is one of the many athletes around the world who have fallen in love with Fortnite Battle Royale. The video game has become so popular that it has also caught the attention of the sports world.
While it may be unusual for a soccer player to be good at video games, that’s exactly what the 33-year-old midfielder is. Ozil has his own Twitch channel where gamers can watch his gameplay and he’s been playing for a long time. According to his agent, Dr. Erkut Sogut, the former Arsenal star is very good at the game and could become an esports athlete.
“He’s going to be more into esports and maybe become an esports athlete. He’s really good at Fortnite, and I think one day I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s competing.”
It seems that Ozil’s football career is coming to an end and, considering his situation at Fenerbahce, he could retire very soon. It seems that he has already made plans for his future, and it wouldn’t be surprising if he becomes a professional Fortnite player.
Mesut Ozil is very good at Fortnite Battle Royale
Apart from being a fantastic footballer and earning numerous accolades, Mesut Ozil is very good at Fortnite Battle Royale. He is not only a regular player, but he has also played since his early seasons.
Mesut Ozil is so enamored with Fortnite that some soccer fans believe his health problems were due to playing the video game. One fan even calculated how many games of Fortnite the footballer won in 2018 and concluded that he spent too much time sitting down.
The footballer owns his own esports team, M10 Sports, and also has a gaming house in Germany. He not only loves games, but he understands what it takes to be a competitive gamer.
Aside from his success on the soccer field, Ozil has also been very successful in Fortnite, winning over a thousand games. His win rate also puts him above millions of other players.
Ozil’s competitive career in Fortnite could start very soon
Despite his incredible skills, Mesut Ozil hasn’t had much success on the football field lately. In 37 games for Fenerbahce, Ozil scored nine goals. He has two more years left on his contract with the Turkish national team, but his career could end even sooner.
Ozil’s agent also commented on his football career:
“I think he will no longer play football for any other club. I can’t see that, it will be Fenerbahce, and that’s it.”
In the worst case scenario, Mesut Ozil could focus on his competitive Fortnite career in the summer of 2024. However, considering his recent controversies and disagreements with the team, it wouldn’t be surprising if it happened much sooner.
Going from footballer to esports athlete is an unusual choice, but it seems like the right one for Ozil and his future.
