Mario Götze and Borussia Dortmund, a Bundesliga football club, are parting ways – now for the second time. Since his legendary winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina, things have not gone well for Mario Götze. Instead, the burden of this historic goal since July 13, 2014, seems to be crushing.
At Bayern Munich, Götze could not prevail after that. Even the return to Borussia Dortmund two years after the World Cup triumph did not get the soccer star’s career back on track. Last season he scored seven times in 26 games and made seven assists. This season, however, he has only scored a measly three goals in 14 matches, which is why Götze and Dortmund will part ways after this season. A long-awaited step, which Borussia’s sports director Michael Zorc confirmed publicly last Saturday.
But where does Götze go from here? At almost 28 years of age, Götze is actually in the best footballer’s age. But in the Bundesliga, Götze would also be difficult to place because of his million-dollar salary.
Therefore, a move abroad is more likely. AS Rome in Italy is considered a hot candidate, while Götze is unlikely to be happy in the English Premier League, which is known for its robustness.
