Soccer Star Mesut Özil Looks To Go Pro In Fortnite Esports

Dexerto: “According to Mesut’s agent, Dr Erkut Sogut, the 33-year-old could ditch his football boots for a keyboard and mouse once his contract expires in a few years’ time.”

“He will go more into esports, play himself and maybe become an esports athlete,” Sogut told The Telegraph. “He’s really good, to be honest, at Fortnite and I think one day I wouldn’t be surprised if he is competing,” said Özil’s agent. “He owns a team, M10 Esports, and he has players. He has a gaming house in Germany. He has football, like Fifa, and Fortnite.”

“Özil isn’t the only footballer to get involved with esports either. In 2020, David Beckham was announced as the co-owner of British esports organization Guild Esports. Similarly, Manchester City star Kun Agüero is the founder and CEO of KRÜ Esports, an organization that competes in Valorant and FIFA.”
