Arsenal Target Mario Gotze Urged To Reject Liverpool For BVB Move

Mario Gotze 4

Reports are out claiming that German legend Lothar Matthaus says Mario Gotze should choose a return to Borussia Dortmund over a move to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Gotze is expected to leave Bayern Munich at the end of this season.

“Gotze back to Dortmund would simply be a good fit,” Matthaus wrote in his column for Sport Bild.

“Our World Cup hero is a child of the Borussia Dortmund academy. He might have ruined it for some fans following his move to Bayern, but I feel he does not owe anyone an apology over his decision to go for a new challenge elsewhere.

“Things unfortunately didn’t pan out as everybody expected. But both Gotze and Dortmund know from each other what they bring to the table. He will soon win the fans over again after his first few goals for BVB.

“Would a return to Dortmund mean he has failed at Bayern? I think that would be harsh to say. He won two Bundesliga titles with Dortmund and he will win his fifth title in total if Bayern win it this season. These successes with Bayern, in which he had a hand, prove him right for joining them. But it’s also a fact that he has been unable to become an undisputed starter like Thomas Muller.

“The reason behind all this is not just Gotze’s quality or his mentality. The marriage between Gotze and Bayern was a misunderstanding right from the start.”

Arsenal are also said to be keen on Gotze.
