2:21 am
headlines an inside story. german or turkish footballer mesut ozil his resignation from the german national team has triggered the debates on racism and integration so how will germany's and europe's multicultural society deal with the issue this is inside story.
2:22 am
hello and welcome to the program i'm peter racism and disrespect those were the reasons mesut ozil gave for quitting the german national team after being blamed for germany's shock defeat in the first round of this year's world cup he created a media storm after having his picture taken with the turkish president wretch up to one and made critics began to question his loyalty and they accused him of loving turkey more than germany was born in germany to attack his family the german football association has rejected a claim of racism they did however concede they could have done more to protect him but we're discussing those issues with our panel in a moment but first dominic cain sets up today's discussion from berlin. his international career is over now club duties with arsenal have taken mesut ozil to the far east but in his absence the fallout from his retirement is reverberating around germany the newspapers have seized on his statement in which he pointed the
2:23 am
finger at the german football association specifically and its president hein heart because linda accusing him of having a racially discriminative background earth still has been in the spotlight for his off the field actions since this moment posing with the turkish president both alone and with other german players who have turkish roots red chip type area one is a divisive figure in germany as are the policies of his government but in the turkish community in berlin even among those who oppose aerotow on many support earth will . begin fighting racism begins with showing people where the limits are we've had enough someone needs to say that to the german football federation that all players with nine german backgrounds are welcome and we will make sure that you feel well in germany if you have a second or third home that's ok but you're here and you're a part of our society some in the football world here remember what happened after
2:24 am
france won the world cup in one thousand nine hundred eight how that multicultural team acted as a catalyst for the then german hierarchy to change its thinking first of all the tried more integration they've tried to build of more schools and as you see it worked and whether you were twenty one in four thousand and nine and whether with the team in two thousand and fourteen in brazil. you know that if there are success nobody discusses where they come from. and yet after this summer's french victory in russia some did highlight the racial background of that team with one comedian describing the victory as africa winning the world cup something french officials angrily dismissed saying there is no hyphen in people's nationality they are french and only french. here in berlin mesut does have one very powerful ally angle americal says she values him as a great footballer who did
2:25 am
a lot for the national team and in his career he wore the national jersey ninety two times scoring twenty three goals and helping his team to win the world cup but now he says the levels of racism and disrespect he's received mean he will never wear this again dominic kane al-jazeera berlin. ok let's bring in our guest joining us today here on inside story from ankara yousif cannily a turkish journalist and formerly the editor of the how to get daily news out of berlin we'll be talking to football commentator and radio host and in brussels julian to us french sports journalist and writer welcome to you all gentleman use of candy and korea first is he german or is he turkish of course he's a turkish gentleman like me i'm a turkish cypriot no one can deny my cypriot north of my turkishness and miss it is ill is german all turkish origin and is proud of being turk and being
2:26 am
a gentleman and this is what he has been saying all along and have therefore thinking that his idea or ignoring his turkish big grant or deny his german identity would of course be a racist up roasted issue and that's why he was really furious with the treatment he received the very he will start since truly was a gentleman then he was a fool he was a turk the so-called unacceptable eric glasser in berlin can he really be both. well officially the german citizen years played for the german national team and the. huge twenty one national team and his roots of course his parents and all his ancestors they are turkish and for sure he was raised in girls and kiran where many people from turkey are staying and living and i guess
2:27 am
there when he was a young guy he was talking more turkish than a german language julian doing in brussels clear of the year five times how do you go from being so incredibly naturally successful on the pitch to saying i've had enough i can't do this well in the end i think the political side of this affair has made in say he he can't do it anymore because you know a footballer is also a human being and is it as ill as a man of two cultures. can't understand why he's been such criticized by reprinting his roots and india and he counts like jew is job anymore in proper conditions you served in ankara what does this say about football in germany or perhaps about people who would describe themselves as being football fans in
2:28 am
germany. course the kirksville problem seeing ozil in the german national league edition of team or his sack says his reports that arsenal are would hire him a ivan has made big news in turkey now it is as though this force is force and soccer is very important in turkey as well as it is in any other part of the cut the world. you know it is home power. still it was named after him and now they are changing the photograph. previously it was still in the. german national team suited now the one that is shaking hands with. it's of course important is a public figure. but if you love me i've been there and footballer posing with a political figure might not be the best thing to do but the criticizing him for
2:29 am
debt or accusing of him being more to our core war whatever i can understand. discriminating because of that is equally but eric last a football is posed with politicians all the time we saw the french president emmanuel macro wrapping himself up in the flag when he's his team did very very very well at the world cup this comes down to at some level surely the nature of mr de one because that's why the racist comments were made because it was a reaction to mr tough guy image. i mean everybody knew when and who is ill took this picture together that a couple weeks after that in turkey they had elections everyone knew it and i'm quite sure that ms would still new that also i'd will not blame him for that because his roots are turkish no doubt about it but i will blame his advisors they
2:30 am
took advantage of him for many years now they achieved his bank account and their own of course but there's advise they gave him to pose with other gun for this big was wrong. in brussels are they a bigger social issues in play here dominic kane are berlin correspondent there was talking about. the argument that the reason between france and a cable news network anchor who was talking about the world cup having been won by quotes africa and then you get into that whole territory of ownership who owns it where do people come from etc and then that plays into the multicultural debate well the situation is kind of complicated in france because issue take the victory at the walk of twenty years ago the players where. taken as examples of
2:31 am
multi-cultural easy and they were given a role that isn't their role their role is actually to play football on the pitch and twenty years later the players just wanted to represent france they all so then says french players for example if you take the defender belgium and the he answer to a tweet who. try to show all the origins of the french players by responding with twenty three french flags showing that all the players see themselves as french and they and so it's not really understandable in france that a brode some people no matter there are people from the streets of anchormen talk about the the victory of the african scene also because in france this debate is history clee. extreme right wing debates when you speak about the african regions
2:32 am
of some players. you enter the extreme right wing game and that's this is something we don't want we don't want to do anymore because it would actually just ruin the joy of winning the war cap. what's your reading of the german if a the dia be handled this because they at one point said we need an explanation they already had an explanation but it didn't seem to get any traction with the. well the dia of beers made the mistake just before the world cup did start. after the pictures were published with the other one. do not forget the other guy. there was a press meeting in preparation of the world cup and they asked the man to talk to the press people of germany and he did it and never the less than that in the first match after that the people in the stadium there were shouting on going no on and there there didn't like his appearance now for germany who is ill didn't
2:33 am
talk to the press he didn't talk at all until last sunday and that was a big mistake the be should have forced him to give at least there's a small statement why he has done this picture at this point of the year was missed they are the ground so they missed it and now they belong to the group of the losers ok let's pause for a second and take a closer look at how prevalent racism is in football in june after sweden's defeat at the world cup swedish player jimmy dumas was criticized for his performance and racially abused on social media earlier this year belgian me she but she we who was playing for the german club or us your daughter on during a europa league game and italy was subjected to racist monkey chants from atalanta fans in january jefferson of the colombian central midfielder who plays for spain's levante says he was abused on the pitch by
2:34 am
a cell topeka striker and leon balogun and both players for local german teams said they were abused by some fans during the warm up before a domestic game uses cannily in ankara how is this being not reported in turkey how how is this being perceived in turkey is there any question in turkey that this is racism. yes and by and large there is a over as an acronym and. in all i'm to m. pro-government circles it media which is the government is getting this and this idea. that this is the races move. acted in a manner defending it's not his national honor this is the general perception. as i said it his own power to place the photograph of it the street a day after him removed the. photograph it from the colors and
2:35 am
instead put of what put down shaking hands. this has become a national sentiment but don't forget this decision or this move came immediately after the enter supriyo they are germany is it i mean even the chancellor merkel said they are committed that there was a problem in germany regarding treatment of my duties ordered for eight years eric last if we just broaden this out for a second we live in a time particularly in the context of europe of identity politics do we now have to face up to reality we live in a time as well of identity sports where people want to mislabel or relabel individual players and then say the worst things ever that you can say about somebody. well i think we have the same opinion about upcoming
2:36 am
racism and the strong right wings in every almost every country in europe and that germany has the same problem ten years ago when there were guys like kid you are originally from to nisha who is ill from turkey or board whose father is from ghana that was not a problem you have idiots in the stadium everywhere when they see dark guys and they do not belong to their own team they shout on them and they do this monkey sound and something like that but is getting stronger now as in general in the society racism and the red wing are getting stronger everywhere in india is in brussels why is football getting more and more therefore politicized is it just that it's so incredibly popular and you've got that blend of lots of money and lots of good players you know finding their way around the world because they say come
2:37 am
to europe on a good deal they get the passports but they don't deserve what this individual was on the receiving end of. that's actually a good question because it's quite paradoxal if you take the ultras in the stance they claim for non political football and as the clubs has become multinational companies they also don't want football to be involved with politics i though is like any of us are values like fighting homophobia i have fighting racism fighting and system it isn't but the thing is. the players have become. products and they tend to to be to become more and more neutral and the fact that some political incidents occur at that time might reassure us that they are still humans and that football is still a human game and know no matter home home much money is involved you cannot
2:38 am
take the feelings out of a human being and you cannot. yet also take a take of the the fights he he he he wants to make in order to to represent his roots or to represent his personality and that's the same for everyone which is in involved in football every class of it has been a long a long ongoing campaign get wrist kick racism out of football that's been the what ten fifteen years now if you're right and there's more racism in the game do we need to go back to basics on this because clearly to get racism out of the game campaign it's not working. well if you think of the world cup in russia many people before the world cup they said oh russia they have problems with home or for b. and something like that they don't like black people we didn't see that you're in
2:39 am
the world cup so you can't say it was not successful but in many cities where you have social problems i mean paris is a good example berlin is another example. in many cities like that the people go to the stadium and they want to live out their emotions and if they read every day in the newspapers or watch television and they get anxious about the foreign people there they will let their emotions out then and the stadium and that's how racism works in the brains of the people you see in ankara is that how politics works in the brains of the people to pick up that phrase there from eric who you are because if one has engaged at all when. playing. that's not football ok there's a game going on on the pitch but it's also tribalism it's about loyalty it's about politics and it's it's always
2:40 am
a dog whistle match. our fortune of this reality will live in their belonging or the identity of the people i mean how can you deny eight. how good how can he did night if a prisoner in our country in white suv or a cup of tea. in london. how can you say no if you are offered a photo portal to meet the president how can you say no will you like it or not it's difficult to say no particularly for our poll and our political soccer player how could he say no or if his program a. person of good is a dog because politics and the sports as you rightly said out in terror related to admit politicians are very much aware of the importance. of football in everyday life and they exploited to the maximum to get votes and they
2:41 am
are indeed the whole affair around is ill is a. poor fish for some a more populous city to get over even the embargoes. imposed on him in the european. dinners during the campaign. he tried to read as much people as possible to start to put a glove then so i still i may dislike it yes but the further they have on practical politics the exploit everything possible or to yours or to vote. the platform of you have to pass on the message erick we should perhaps just the sake of clarity restate what he said when this whole controversy blew up and he was on the receiving end of this racist abuse on various social media platforms he said look i went along out of respect for the office of the presidency not necessarily for the
2:42 am
president himself he didn't go there out of respect or political support for the one his line is it was it was for the seal of the office eric if the german f.a. is to do something more to get round this issue or to destroy this issue because there is clearly question there are clearly questions to be asked here what can it do and would the german f.a. take him back. i know for sure not and i don't agree with the official opinion of me is that i mean he knew that he knew about the elections coming up in turkey and he knew of course that this picture would be public relations for ms they had a grand so never talk about just about the president we are talking about the president and ozil knew also that in germany many people don't like ms they are the graham and his politics he was talking about the bring in turkey closer to europe
2:43 am
in fact he did just the opposite thing so to the cows ursule i think he's gone he's gone for germany now he's gone for the national team and there will no comeback ever be june do as. he'll never make a comeback will world football come back from this is world football heading into a dark time when it comes to those those relationships between individual players the relationships between individual countries but i think it's just the beginning of a long story which never going to end actually it's not the first case won't be the last one. and you have to make a difference between club football and nation of the team football which are two very different things i mean in the first case no matter where you come from no matter what you represent as long as you play correctly on the pitch for for the
2:44 am
for the club when when it comes to the nation or team. we're some players will always have a double identity and it all always depends of the people who they represent i mean here in western europe the fans are very attached to the to the shirt to to the crest and they're very keen on. when they're really present tense to play for their country the country of the fans who cheer for them and in in that in that case. measure to zele and many other players all over the world we always have the rights to have two identities but they also have to understand then the fans don't understand when they give their hearts like messages in said to two countries because for them there is only one team one shot one nation ok we
