German Football Federation (DFB) president Reinhard Grindel responded that global players should not let themselves be "manipulated" in Erdogan's election campaign.
Arsenal's Ozil and Manchester City midfielder Gundogan, who are both German internationals born in Gelsenkirchen and of Turkish origin, met Erdogan in London on Sunday alongside Everton striker Cenk Tosun.
"That's why it's not good that worldwide players allow themselves to be manipulated for his electoral campaign".
Mr Erdogan continued to blast the actions of the US President by insisting the Iran nuclear deal should be "preserved". "It certainly hasn't helped the DFB's integration efforts".
"As German internationals we adhere to the values upheld by the DFB and we are aware of our responsibilities", added Gundogan.
Erdogan´s visit comes just weeks before Turkey holds early parliamentary and presidential elections on June 24.

"It's unusual that German footballers would let themselves be used in the election campaign of a Turkish president who has so recently made disparaging remarks about Germany", Hans-Peter Friedrich, deputy speaker of the German parliament said.
"To my dear president, with my respects", Gundogan wrote on his.
Both players are preparing for next month's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, in which Germany is among the favorites. Footballers of any nationality will always be welcomed by our president, especially when they are the ones who want to have such a meeting.
