Ozil misery continues after Arsenal as he comes off on stretcher for Fenerbahce

Mesut Ozil's start at Fenerbahce has gone from bad to worse after he was taken off on a stretcher in a 1-1 draw with Antalyaspor on Thursday.

Ozil, who cut short his contract at Arsenal to complete a move to Fenerbahce after being frozen out by Mikel Arteta, is yet to score or provide an assist since joining the Turkish giants.

The World Cup winner had a golden opportunity to get off the mark for his new side when he received the ball in the Antalyaspor box.

Goalkeeper Ruud Boffin was out of position and the Antalyaspor defence were at sixes and sevens as they tried to get back into position to close Ozil down.

But with plenty of time to set himself for the goal, Ozil fired wide of the post.

Ozil's night went from bad to worse following a challenge from Antalyaspor goalscorer Fredy.

The 32-year-old appeared to go over his ankle and had to be taken off on a stretcher on 67 minutes, with Irfan Kahveci coming on to replace him.

Ozil is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines, according to reports, after suffering partial tears to his inner and outer lateral ankle ligaments.

There are now fears the former Real Madrid midfielder will miss Fenerbahce's must-win fixture with bitter rivals Besiktas later this month.
