Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has laid into Mesut Ozil following his decision to stop playing for Germany, saying "he's been playing shit for years".
The Arsenal midfielder announced on Sunday that he would "no longer be playing for Germany" after accusing German FA officials of racism.
Ozil, who was born in Germany but has Turkish heritage, has been the subject of criticism in the nation after posing for a photograph with Turkish president Recep Erdogan before the World Cup.
Germany went on to exit the tournament at the group stage, with Ozil being dropped for the second game, and now Hoeness has launched a scathing attack on the 29-year-old.
The former West Germany international told SKy Sports: "I'm glad it is over. He's been playing shit for years.
"He last won a tackle before the 2014 World Cup. And now he hides himself and his crap performance behind this photo.
"His 35 million follower boys, who of course do not exist in the real world, think he has played excellently if he plays a cross to a man."
