Former Borussia Dortmund player Kevin Grosskreutz feels Mario Gotze who is finding life difficult at Dortmund will be a good at Liverpool.
Gotze has been struggling since coming back from injury at Dortmund.
After scoring the World Cup winning goal for Germany in 2014, none could have expected Gotze’s career will go down in the opposite direction. But a transfer to Bayern Munich and injuries have turned out to be a turning point of his career.
Gotze’s performance at Bayern has been below average and he turned out a bench warmer in the end. And he has struggled for form and fitness since re-signing for Dortmund. The game against Club Brugge in the Champions League was his first start since the start of the 2018-19 season.
However, Grosskreutz feels a move to Liverpool and reuniting with former manager Jurgen Klopp can change the fortune of Gotze.
“I’m very sorry for Mario Gotze at the moment, because stuff is written about him – and only him – every day. In Bruges, for example, the whole team didn’t play well. Maybe it would be good for him to go abroad in the winter to find a bit more peace and bring his career back on track. Klopp knows him quite well, he would be a good fit for Liverpool.”
Grosskreutz, who was also the part of the World Cup winning squad with Gotze added:
“Of course he has to deliver performances on the pitch. His head is not completely free at the moment.I never expected his career to experience such a phase.”
Gotze and his side had a decent game against Club Brugge and Christian Pulisic was the hero for Dortmund who came on as a substitute and scored the winner at the dying minutes of the game.
