The €37 million summer signing is determined to prove his worth to the Bavarians now that he is fully fit, adding that he is happy to play wherever Pep Guardiola needs him
Bayern Munich attacker Mario Gotze says that he is only going to get better and better in the coming months.
The 21-year-old missed the start of the 2013-14 campaign through injury, but he has been in impressive form in recent weeks, netting a crucial goal in last weekend’s 3-0 rout of former club Borussia Dortmund before scoring a stunner in the midweek Champions League success at CSKA Moscow.
Consequently, Gotze is now brimming with confidence and is optimistic that the best is yet to come from him.
“It is important to bear in mind that I had been recovering from injury for quite a while. I was not 100 per cent yet and it was not easy to gain full fitness,” the Germany international was quoted as saying by TZ.
“But I feel that I am 100 per cent now and that I’m in peak condition. I hope that I will only get better from here on.”
Gotze has featured both in midfield and the false-nine role this season, but he insists that he has no preference as to where coach Pep Guardiola uses him.
“Positions do not really matter,” the playmaker argued. “We are switching positions a lot and always keep moving. We aim to be flexible and unpredictable.
“In the end, we’re just trying to play good football.”
The former Dortmund star has so far netted four goals in 12 appearances in all competitions for Bayern.
