Mario Gotze to leave Borussia Dortmund at end of season

Mario Gotze has played 218 times for Dortmund in two spells with the club but has struggled to earn game time this season. He's played just 20 minutes in all competitions this year.




The German World Cup winner Mario Gotze will leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season when his contract expires.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said Saturday that he spoke with Gotze in the last few days and they agreed he would move on for next season.

“I believe this makes sense for both parties,” Zorc said.

Gotze scored the winning goal against Argentina in the 2014 World Cup final, catapulting him to hero status in Germany.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder has played 218 times for Dortmund in two spells with the club but has struggled to earn game time this season. He’s played just 20 minutes in all competitions in 2020.

Gotze was one of the substitutes as Dortmund played Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
