Ex-Germany boss Joachim Low is reportedly set to become the new manager of Turkish giants Fenerbahce in the summer, meaning an awkward reunion with Mesut Ozil.

Low has taken some time away from the game after 14 years in charge of the German national team, leaving his post last summer after his side lost to England in the last-16 of Euro 2020.

Yet according to Turkish outlet T24, the 61-year-old has agreed to take charge at Fenerbahce after this season, despite his feud with former Arsenal star Ozil.

Ozil retired from international football after the 2018 World Cup after accusing the German FA of being complicit of ‘racism and disrespect’.

The playmaker was photographed with Turkey’s controversial president Recep Tayyip Erdogan ahead of the World Cup in Russia, triggering outrage in Germany.

Yet Low has recently spoken about wanting to bury the hatchet with Ozil the pair did win the 2014 World Cup together in Brazil.

‘Mesut leaving the national team without consulting me beforehand was a great human disappointment for me,’ Low said.

‘The time will come when we will talk or meet again. At some point, the day will come when we will talk things out and put everything aside.

‘These memories will then also be positive for us. He was an incredibly important and great player with great skills.’ Ozil moved to the Turkish club last January after his £350,000-a-week contract at Arsenal was terminated.
