Recently, German star Gotze accepted an interview with the media, looking back at the time from Bayern back to Dortmund, he believes that from a competitive perspective, returning to the Hornet in the summer of 2016 is not the right decision.
From a competitive perspective, obviously not. I hope to win more titles, not just the 2017 German Cup. But I am very grateful to Dort. This club is always special to me. Just like the cooperation with Klopp back then, we still keep in touch from time to time. Unfortunately, after I came back, things did not develop as I hoped. I learned a lot from Tuchel, but he left after a year. I went through a very good stage under the leadership of Boss, and his football philosophy suits me very well.
I will not comment on my previous salary. During the epidemic, such salary cannot be the basis for my negotiation. In the past, even before the outbreak of the science and technology epidemic, people often said that my main concern was money, but what I want to say is that this is not the case in the past and now. Salary is just a subordinate role for me. The decisive and really important factor is competition. I want to participate in the competition, prove myself at the highest level, and show that I can help any team. My desire for football is very strong.
Speaking of top speed, there must be players who are faster than me. In football, reaction speed is also very important. I think I can move fast with the ball. In a narrow space, I can use my instinct to help the team in critical situations. This ability often makes a difference, and I believe I can bring this ability to the club.
I want to consciously give myself some time to make the right decision. There are many aspects that play an important role for me. I need to understand the clubs, coaches and their philosophy. What you should not forget is that the epidemic has created a special situation that everyone must adapt to.
Most rumors are not true, and I don’t want to comment on these confidential conversations. But what I can say is that in the past few weeks, I have exchanged ideas with a few coaches and a few clubs.
I train 6 days a week. The training method is different each time. I have been a professional athlete for more than 10 years. I know my body very well. The fitness coach will help me train regularly. I also use martial arts and yoga. Incorporate into the training plan.
