An interesting report coming out of Germany has it that the prodigal son of Dortmund has returned home.
Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of Mario Gotze from Bayern Munich.The attacking midfielder returns to his former club from Bayern Munich, having previously departed the club in 2013 to move to the Allianz Arena, where he struggled for game time.
Gotze departed the club in somewhat acrimonious circumstances in 2013, having scored 31 goals in 116 matches for the club after his debut in 2008.
Some fans subsequently claimed that the 24-year-old would not be welcomed back to the club, but the deal has now been confirmed by both sides, with Gotze signing a four-year contract until 2020.
The attacking midfielder has also apologised to fans for his move to Bayern, and insists he will work hard to regain their trust, telling the club’s official website: “When I switched from BVB to Bayern in 2013 that was a conscious decision that I will not hide myself behind today.
“Three years later, and at 24, I look with different eyes at my decision. I can well understand that many fans could not understand my decision. I would not even take it today!
Congrats Mario !
