Mario Götze @ Borussia Dortmund

A few years ago, the player Mario Götze became one of the most magnificent promises in world football. Together with Marco Reus, he formed a promising and feared attacking duo. Likewise, football fans remember the decisive Götze goal in the 2014 World Cup final, which was the highest point in the career of the attacking midfielder Mario Götze so far. However, at 27, he has become a player without a team and has had a gray farewell to the club in which he had previously shone.


Footballer Mario Götze's Career

This German player plays as an offensive midfielder and as a striker. He recently announced his departure from the Borussia Dortmund club in the German Bundesliga. He has also been part of the German soccer team. In 2010, he was called up for the first time to the German team, with only 18 years old. He was on the German team that played the 2012 Euro Cup. Then, two years later, he scored the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final.

His stellar period as a player occurred between 2009 and 2013 with Borussia Dortmund. With this team, he was the Champion of Bundesliga during the 2010-2011 season. In the following year, Götze also won the Germany Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal. With this club, he continued to play the 2012-2013 Champions League Final. In mid-2013, Bayern Munich paid € 37 million to take him to his squad.

Götze's period with Bayern Munich meant a decline in his career. The injuries forbid him to maintain the crack level he had reached. This evidence was reflected in the 2015-2016 season in which he only participated in 21 games scoring six goals. He would then return to Borussia Dortmund in the 2016-2017 season. Due to a metabolic disorder, he couldn't play the most of the season, so he was relegated to the bench. In his new stage at Dortmund, he also failed to reach the desired level. In his two periods with this team, he left 45 goals and 61 assists in 217 matches.


Departure From Borussia Dortmund And New Paths For Mario Götze

The soccer suspension due to the Covid-19 expansion has generated a gray ending for Mario Götze at Borussia Dortmund. The attacker's contract would end during the next month of June. So, he announced his discontinuation with his current team. Other elements have come together to generate the Bavarian player's Dortmund leaving. One of them was the possibility of being a substitute, having lost his spot in the starting squad. Remember that Borussia Dortmund count with rising players like Haaland and Sancho. On the other hand, Dortmund wanted to end his expensive contract. According to the Spanish newspaper AS, he would earn 10 million euros per year.

Yet, the talent of this player continues to attract the attention of great European teams. In Italy, new opportunities are outlined for him at Inter Milan and in Rome. Moreover, it is speculated that English teams like Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, West Ham, and Carlo Ancelotti's Everton would be interested in the German attacker.
