Gotze: I have no in­ter­est to leave Bay­ern

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Mario Gotze ad­mits that he has no in­ter­est in leav­ing Bay­ern Mu­nich de­spite re­ports link­ing him with a move away dur­ing the sum­mer.

The Ger­many in­ter­na­tional was ru­moured to be of in­ter­est to Ju­ven­tus as they looked to re­place Ar­turo Vi­dal be­fore they swooped for Her­nanes.

And he in­sists that he wants to re­main at the Al­lianz Arena for a long time and be­come the face of the club.

“I made my own mis­takes but I’ve also had to with­stand a lot of things that have been twisted. The last two years were cer­tainly like a ripen­ing process for me,” he told Sud­deutsche Zeitung.

“I feel very happy here, I am glad to be a Bay­ern player. I would love to be the face of Bay­ern, I’ve played a big role (for the club) in the first two years and I want to play an even greater part.

“I never dealt with a trans­fer, it’s quite pos­si­ble that other clubs had in­ter­est but I had no in­ter­est in leav­ing Bay­ern.”

The World Cup win­ner also moved to ex­plain the trans­fer that saw him leave Borus­sia Dort­mund for Bay­ern in 2013, and re­grets not deny­ing his mo­tives for leav­ing were fi­nan­cial at the time.
