The professional soccer player Mesut Özil is 33 years old, which is definitely a time for professional athletes to start thinking about retirement in the sporting field. Like Özil’s manager in an interview with TheTelegraph reports, the professional athlete could play in the clubs after his career Real Madrid, Arsenal, Schalke 04 and Fenerbahçe SK aiming for a career in esports in the future, as a “Fortnite” player.
At least the manager believes that Özil has the potential for a career as a “Fortnite” professional. The professional soccer player has been passionately active in the Battle Royale game for years and has numerous Twitterstreams and also owns an esports organization for the games “Fortnite” and “FIFA”. However, the future will have to show whether his skills in “Fortnite” are also sufficient for the upper echelons of the competition. In the past, Özil has been criticized by some fans for his gaming passion, who, for example, believed that this was the reason for a back injury in 2020.
