This issue circulated after Raffi Ahmad as the owner of RANS Cilegon FC via Instagram club @rans.cilegon.official, stated that he wanted to recruit one of the world’s football legends.
Raffi did not mention who the person was. But, there are links to Ozil. Because, Fenerbahce’s attacking midfielder has been invited to come to Indonesia.
Netizens immediately responded to this news. Quite a lot of people say this is just a hoax. This is because the 33-year-old midfielder came to Indonesia only as a guest at the launch of the new RANS Cilegon FC uniform for Liga 1 2022/2023.
However, this rumor is getting stronger because Fotospor is also discussing the potential move of Ozil to RANS Cilegon FC in Liga 1 next season.
Through reports published on Sunday (9/1/2022), Fotospor reported that Raffi had visited the current Ozil club to negotiate.
“Although quite suspicious, Raffi Ahmad, President of RANS Cilegon FC, who has come to Istanbul and visited the club door to door in recent months, announces that he has met and agreed with Mesut Ozil,” he wrote.
The issue of Ozil’s transfer to RANS Cilegon FC was also reinforced by Raffi’s statement that he had communicated via WhatsApp (WA). It is believed that this was revealed in a video on RANS Entertainment’s Youtube channel.
