Unsettled FC Bayern München playmaker Mario Gotze has been linked with a move back to his former club Borussia Dortmund, but the clubs fans protested his potential return.
Gotze has struggled for game time over the last couple of seasons due to recurring injuries and the form of his fellow attacking players at the Bavarians.
His lack of time in the first team has led to rumours of a potential summer exit with BVB being touted as a potential destination and the club’s hierarchy admitted they would be open to having him back at the club.
However, during Dortmund’s 3-2 win over SV Werder Bremen on Saturday, a section of the club’s supporters unfurled a banner in protest of bringing the 23-year-old back to Signal Iduna Park.
“Milan or Madrid – the main thing is not Dortmund! P*** off Gotze,” the sign read.
The attacking midfielder came through the youth Academy at Dortmund but controversially decided to join arch-rivals Bayern in 2013 after the Bavarians met the €37million release clause in his contract at the time.
Recent reports have linked the World Cup winner with the likes of Real Madrid, Milan and Liverpool and it’s obvious that at least a portion of Dortmund’s fans are not interested in welcoming him back.
