Even in his leisure time, Mario Gomez likes to think about football. His thoughts and observations often turn to his fellow goal-getters. “There are a lot of strikers I like, many of them in the Bundesliga. The quality is very high, but I don’t really analyse them, I just like watching them score, in every league,” the 25-year-old revealed on Thursday. “And it’s something I’ve always done.”
Naturally, what strikers like most of all is watching goals scored by themselves, and Gomez will surely be no exception. There’s also plenty for him to review and enjoy at present. He has netted nine of Bayern’s last 19 goals, one of the reasons Louis van Gaal’s team have gone seven games without defeat, winning five and drawing two. Gomez is FCB’s top scorer at the moment with ten goals in all competitions, and he has struck five times in the last four league fixtures.
