Mario Gotze dreams of playing alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona, he has revealed in an interview with 11Freunde.
Mario Gotze, the World Cup winner, has announced that his ambition is to play for Barcelona alongside Lionel Messi.
“To celebrate possession football with this [Barca] team, alongside Lionel Messi, that would be a dream,” Gotze said.
Gotze has thus revealed his dream to play alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
Meanwhile, he is talking up his chances of earning a recall to the Germany national team.
Gotze is currently playing for PSV in the Netherlands, after leaving Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer in October 2020.
And the former Bayern Munich midfielder said that he intends to return to the Champions League.
Gotze insists that he has not given up hope of returning to the Champions League.
Now, especially, after finding form again with PSV in Holland, he is open to the idea of a comeback.
“I want to play the Champions League again,” he said.
The playmaker has made an immediate impact in the Eredivisie, scoring five goals and assisting five times in 17 games.
However, Gotze has had a turbulent career in football, so far. He’s battling with persistent fitness problems and struggling with a metabolic illness.
This has curtailed his progress after his match-winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final for Germany.
