According to Al Arabiya English, Ozil believes that Mosaad al-Dossary (Msdossary) who is the reigning champion of FIFA eWorld Cup 2018 to be the “perfect catch” for his team.

Dossary is currently under contract with the USClan team but transferring players from one team to the other is not that costly in the world of eSports reported the Bild.
Ozil’s eSports team members are provided with facilities like an exclusive gaming house in London, personal trainers, performance analyst and even a psychologist.
The FIFA 19 game is said to launch on the 28th of September and if Dossary joins Ozil’s side it can be safe to say this will definitely be one heck of a team that will surely dominate the game.
