Gotze: It's hard to be patient

The Germany international has only sparingly featured for Bayern Munich since his summer move and is keen to get playing time again having shaken off his injury problems

Bayern Munich forward Mario Gotze has admitted that he is getting increasingly frustrated with his spell on the sidelines and is desperate to make his comeback.

The Germany international, 21, has made only three official appearances for Bayern since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund for €37 million in the summer and has been out of action ever since picking up an ankle injury in the European Supercup win over Chelsea back in August.

“It has not been easy to remain patient,” Gotze was quoted as saying by Bild.

“I obviously want to play games. Every player wants to play games. I want to be on the pitch for each second of every game.

“But I have been injured for four weeks. Let’s not forget that.”

The attacking midfielder made the bench for Bayern’s 1-0 Bundesliga win over Wolfsburg at the weekend and could make his comeback in the Champions League game against Manchester City on Wednesday.
