Borussia Dortmund youngster Mario Gotze insists on staying with BVB – Bundesliga news update
Borussia Dortmund starlet, Mario Gotze, has revealed that he will not leave the Borussians, despite Manchester United and Barcelona FC interested in taking his signature. Highly rated attacking midfielder has attracted top European clubs with his performances,
but the 18-year-old midfielder does not intend to leave his current club.
Gotze said, “I have always said that I’m committed to Borussia and that I have the club to thank for getting this far. Why would I even consider leaving this excellent club, especially since Dortmund have great plans for the future.”
The Borussians CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke, also revealed that the attacking midfielder is not for sale. He said, “Mario really is an extraordinary player. A €15 million offer for ‘Goetzinho’ wouldn’t even make me consider cashing in on him.”
The 18-year-old playmaker has been a sensational discovery for Dortmund. He has played a vital part in Die Borussians supreme run in the 2010-11. The German international has sublime passing skills and provides an elegant presence in the centre of the pitch.
The youngster was rated very high in the Dortmund’s youth club. However, he never managed to show his true potential, as the Borussians had another prodigious playmaker Shinji Kagawa pulling the strings in the attacking third. After Kagawa left to represent
his national side in the AFC Asia Cup held in Qatar, he was replaced with Gotze in the playing eleven by team manager Jurgen kloop. Kagawa suffered a season ending injury in Qatar. Thus, Goetze was assured of the first team action for the remainder of the
season. The 18-year-old then proved his sublime passing skills.
German Bundesliga produced prodigious talent on a conveyor belt during the recent years. The rapid rise of Thomas Mueller, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira and Holger Badstuber to stardom is not a secret. Ozil and Khedira have won moves to the glittering halls of
Gotze’s performances were noticed. As a result, European top-notch clubs are looking to take his signature. Manchester City were looking to sign the youngster in the winter transfer market. However, the English side was unable to strike a deal and splashed
the cash on David Silva instead.
German clubs have spent millions on developing youth facilities and nurturing young talent. However, the continued departure of quality players to more illustrious leagues remains a cause of concern. If the current rate of players’ transfer continues, German
Bundesliga will lose all the talent to the poachers and lose out the hard-earned UEFA coefficient third place to Italy, having wrestled the place after years of hard work.
