After rejecting Jurgen Klopp offer, Mario Gotze admits he got it wrong



In 2016, once his tenure at Bayern Munich came to an end as a result of his World Cup heroics, Mario Gotze spurned the opportunity to join Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool revolution.

After rejecting Jurgen Klopp offer, Mario Gotze admits that he is got it wrong

Gotze has once more admitted publicly that he regrets not seizing the chance to reconnect with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

The German World Cup champion from 2014 had the chance to join the Reds in the summer of 2016 after falling short of expectations after a contentious £31 million deal to Bayern Munich three years earlier. Gotze, who was for a brief period the most expensive German player in history, recently signed with Eintracht Frankfurt. He had previously made his name with rivals Borussia Dortmund as a teenage sensation and excelled under Klopp, who gave him his debut at the age of 17 and quickly established him as a mainstay of his team.

the newly appointed liverpool manager gave the “german messi” a way out of the bundesliga and into his anfield revolution as his career stalled in bavaria and bayern was seeking to cash in. but gotze, who scored the game-winning goal against argentina in the 2014 world cup final, chose to return to dortmund, where thomas tuchel was trying to follow in jurgen klopp’s footsteps.

The 30-year-old claimed to German publication Bild that Liverpool had not advanced to the Champions League in their first season under Jurgen Klopp. “It wasn’t the club that always played at the top, not even in prior years. Under Thomas Tuchel, Dortmund had previously had a standout season. Dortmund’s BVB was prospering. Jurgen continued to construct something. You must admit that Liverpool would have been preferable in hindsight.”

Before Leicester and PSV Eindhoven’s Europa League quarterfinal match, Gotze originally shared the story three months ago. The 2011 Golden Boy winner acknowledged, “I wasn’t in a state of mind where I could consider it, so that’s why it didn’t happen.

“Am I sorry now? Even if it can be challenging to reflect, if you ask me now, I would say that I absolutely should have joined Liverpool. I simply erred in judgment, but I don’t regret it.”
