Mesut Ozil Hints At New Career Path As He Joins San Francisco-Based Investment Firm, Class 5 Global

That skill is beginning to pay off as he used it to land himself a spot in the world of finance as a strategic adviser with San Francisco’s venture fund, Class 5 Global.



Due to various reasons, Mesut Ozil, 32, has had rocky relationship with his football club, Arsenal and their managerial board, and also with his country, Germany, forcing him into an early retirement from the international football scene as he claimed he no longer feels wanted by the squad over how he was treated.

On the football field, Ozil is known for his tactical ‘dead eye’ ability to find teammates regardless of where they are positioned. That skill is beginning to pay off as he used it to land himself a spot in the world of finance as a strategic adviser with San Francisco’s venture fund, Class 5 Global; on company’s website, their plan reads in part: “We hope to build the best capital partner for emerging market startups . . . We have no factories, no inventory, and no secret formula. All we have are the people who choose to work with us. Great entrepreneurs are the single most important factor to Class 5’s success. ” and they might have found one in Mesut Ozil.

The new EPL season restarting might have seemed like a breath of fresh air for No. 10 midfielder but the relationship with him and his club’s manager, Mikel Arteta continue to go down the drain as he played only 18 matches in the 2019/2020 season and currently has no slots on the Arsenal’s 2020/2021 EPL squad.

Defending why he omitted Ozil from the squad, Mikel Arteta said: “What I can tell you that I tried my best, I tried to give him as many opportunities as I could”, continuing, “And that from my own side, I’ve been patient, given him opportunities and been fair.” He furthered his statement in the interview with Sky Sports: “But I have to put my decisions, with my heart and with my brain to make the right decisions that I believe are good.”

Judging by those statements, it is quite safe to say that Arsenal do not see Ozil as a squad member in the nearest future but this has not affected the talisman, or at least financially speaking as he still currently makes £ 18.2M and yet has set eyes on more financial stability as he hints at a future outside football getting a post of strategic adviser with the above-mentioned firm.

According to a report from news agency Bloomberg: Ozil was already an investor in Class 5 Global, which has more than $100 million in assets under management. “I am excited to shape and work on my post-football career while I am still actively playing football,” he said in a statement.
