The goalscorer for Germany in the final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Mario Goetze will no longer be a part of Borussia Dortmund after this season. Dortmund’s sports director Michael Zorc confirmed on Saturday that Mario Goetze will end his run with the team after the season comes to a close.
Although Goetze had helped Borussia Dortmund win the league and cup double in 2011 and 2012 before he left for Bayern Munich in 2013, he made a space for himself in world football only when he made Germany the world champions in the 2014 FIFA World Cup with a superb volley against Argentina in the final.
However, his prowess faded away with time and in 2016, he returned to Borussia Dortmund only to warm the bench time and again. And with Erling Haaland’s addition to the side this year, Mario Goetze does not find himself a regular fit in the team anymore.
Mario Goetze To Part Ways With Borussia Dortmund After The End Of This Season
“We will stop working together with Mario Goetze in the summer,” Zorc told Sky before Saturday’s Bundesliga game away to Wolfsburg.
“It is a joint decision after a constructive conversation. Mario is a really good guy,” he added.
Borussia Dortmund March On In Their Bundesliga Campaign
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund have once again carried on from where they left it in the last game. Tremendous possession, a very high pressing, and jaw-dropping runs from midfield, this was how Borussia Dortmund began when they took on Vfl Wolfsburg on Matchday 27 at the Volkswagen Arena.
Dortmund beat Wolfsburg by 2-0 and inch closer to Bayern Munich on the Bundesliga points table. The goalscorers for Dortmund were Raphael Guerreiro and Achraf Hakimi. Thorgan Hazard and Jadon Sancho claimed the assists respectively.
