Mario Gotze returned to Borussia Dortmund last season from Bayern in a move which was very controversial as not all the fans appreciated it. Many had seen his move to Bayern Munich as a betrayal, and while there, things didn’t quite work out well for him and he returned to his old club. And still, even after his return things didn’t quite fall into place on the pitch and got worst when he was diagnosed with the illness.
He also had this to say about his training…“I had my special program, which intensified day by day and week by week,” Gotze said.
“It was an individual plan, so I spent the last five months training, [going] running and [doing] much work in the gym. I intensified it step by step and week by week.”
“I have been in rehab for five months, so I could not train with the team and have not been with the team. So this just makes it more beautiful for me to be with the team again and train with them.”
Mario Gotze now will have a new challenge and also a new opportunity to rediscover himself as the club now has a new manager. So he will have to fight hard to prove himself and secure his position at the club.
