"That's why it's not good that worldwide players allow themselves to be manipulated for his electoral campaign".

The Turkish lira and bonds declined to a new record after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's plan to take more responsibility for monetary policy if he wins an election next month spooked investors who worry about his distaste of high interest rates.

Mr Erdogan faces re-election next month and has been accused of using his 3-day visit to the United Kingdom to campaign for the votes of expatriate Turks. "It certainly hasn't helped the DFB's integration efforts", he said in a statement. It's not that easy, and both have said they did not want to make a political statement.

Ties between the European Union and Turkey are increasingly strained, with Brussels saying that Erdogan is leading his country away from the path to membership, while some Turkish officials say they feel betrayed by some the bloc's leaders.

"The president of an worldwide German footballer is called Frank-Walter Steinmeier, his chancellor Angela Merkel and his parliament the Bundestag, the headquarters of which are in Berlin and not Ankara", Ozdemir told AFP subsidiary SID. Erdogan also said he also would be discussing regional and global issues with May.

DFB team coordinator Oliver Bierhoff said: "I still have absolutely no doubts about Mesut and Ilkay's commitment to playing for the Germany national team and how much they identify with our values". Something that is legitimate for them can not be illegitimate for us.

In an interview with Bloomberg Television broadcast on Tuesday, Erdogan said the central bank was independent but it can not ignore signals from the head of the executive once the switch to a presidential system is complete.

Gündogan wrote: "For my honored President, with great respect".

Turkish football federation vice-president Servet Yardmici, an executive member of the UEFA Board, claimed Erdogan's meeting with the players was centred on "football chat".

Both players will be spoken to ahead of Germany's World Cup preparations.

"We've always been clear that we want Turkey to uphold its global obligations, including respect for freedom of expression and political freedoms", he said.
