Gotze's shock move to join arch-rivals Bayern from Dortmund was announced late last season to the shock of many fans. The German international completed his move to Bayern on 1 July and revealed that his decision was based on his desire to develop as a player under new coach Pep Guardiola.
"I'm very excited about this new challenge," the 21-year-old was quoted as saying by the club's official website.
"I made the switch out of conviction, I want to take the next step in my career.
"Pep is superb. I can relate to his philosophy. He is very easy going and treats players in a friendly manner. He will push us very far, everyone will benefit from him.
"However, I focus on my recovery right now, as I want to get back into training, finally. The coach will make these decisions when the time has come."
