Carlo Ancelotti and Karl-Heinz Rumenigge have once again embarrassed Bayern Munich playmaker Mario Gotze, by reiterating that the German is not wanted at the Allianz Arena.
At the end of May, the 24-year-old committed his future to the Bundesliga champions, only for his club to publicly question: why?
German outlet Sport1 have published a story today which states both the manager and the CEO have personally alerted Gotze that he’s surplus to requirements.
“With, Mario, everything has been made known,” Rumenigge said. “He knows how the club thinks and he knows how the future coach thinks…”
Gotze is currently on international duty with Germany at Euro 2016, where he started the 2-0 win over Ukraine – although didn’t shine individually – which led to much online backlash.
While Gotze is fit now, his confidence seems at an all-time low, and he’ll surely regret wanting to fight for a club who sees no place for him.
Come the end of the Euros, it’d be smart to approach him again, as he may have had a change of heart following these latest revelations.
If he has, Liverpool would surely go in for Gotze, who was made Jurgen Klopp’s primary summer transfer target. If it’s Champions League football the attacker is after though, we’ll face an impossible task in persuading him.
