MESUT OZIL has unfollowed Fenerbahce on social media after being told he will never play for the club again.
The midfielder, 33, was limited to 21 Super Lig appearances last season due to various injury issues.
His dwindling fitness levels led to him being frozen out of the Fenerbahce squad by interim manager Ismail Kartal earlier this year.
And now, new boss Jorge Jesus has revealed that the midfielder will have no place in his squad in future.
During a press conference, he said: "He had his time, his space.
"He has a beautiful history in Turkey, no one can take it away from him.

"He is a well-known player around the world. But I will follow exactly what was the end of the Ozil era.
"The most important thing here is Fenerbahce and it is from there that I build my ideas and the players who come to work with me."
Ozil has since closed the door on his Fenerbahce career by unfollowing the club on social media, despite the fact he still has two years remaining on his current contract.
The Super Lig giants are now looking to sell him this summer as he is one of the club's highest earners.

But, despite the setback, Ozil is now considering a drastic career change – he wants to become a professional gamer.
His agent Dr Erkut Sogut told The Telegraph: "He will go more into esports, play himself and maybe become an esports athlete.
"He’s really good, to be honest, at Fortnite and I think one day I wouldn’t be surprised if he is competing.
"He owns a team – M10 Esports – and he has players.
"He has a gaming house in Germany.
