Ex-Arsenal star Mesut Ozil was stretchered off injured during his latest outing for Fenerbahce on Thursday.

Ozil had to be helped off the pitch early in the second half of a 1-1 draw with Antalyaspor, having initially been handed his fourth consecutive start for his new club.

The 32-year-old went down awkwardly on his ankle following a challenge from opposition forward Fredy and was unable to continue thereafter, compounding what has so far been a frustrating start to his Fenerbahce career.

How many games could Ozil miss?

Goal has learned that Ozil sustained partial tears to his inner and outer lateral ankle ligaments and he is now set to take in between 4-6 weeks on the sidelines.

He will be unavailable for selection when Fenerbahce take on Konyaspor on Monday, and will also sit out subsequent Super Lig fixtures against Genclerbirligi and arch-rivals Besiktas later this month.

The best-case scenario for supporters would be for Ozil to return for a meeting with Denizlispor on April 5, but it is also possible he could be out until May depending on how his recovery goes.
