The under-fire president of the German Football Association (DFB), admitted Sunday that he should have given Mesut Ozil more support when the midfielder was the target of "racist attacks".After Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan, who also has Turkish family, met Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May, their loyalty to Germany was questioned.Gundogan and Ozil, who were both born in Germany, were booed in a pre-World Cup defeat to Austria.While Gundogan made a statement to insist the Erdogan meeting had no political motivation, Ozil kept silent for two months before walking away from Germany duty.Grindel said the door is not closed for Ozil to play for Germany again under head coach Joachim Loew, who has always supported the attacking midfielder.
