Götze 'looking forward to what lies ahead'
The early bird catches the worm, Mario Götze clearly believes, as he was out on the Säbener Strasse pitch on Tuesday at 8.30 am. The Germany international worked on his return to the squad programme, and it is coming closer! "Two more weeks," said Götze, who hopes to rejoin his colleagues within that space of time at the latest. The scorer of the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final has been sidelined with a ruptured muscle tendon in the groin since last October. At first it was "hard," but the 23-year-old has moved on, as he stated in Mia san dran, the TV show jointly presented by Telekom and FC Bayern: "I'm looking ahead. The past is the past. I'm looking forward to what lies ahead!" The broadcast featuring Mario Götze and his brother Fabian will be made available on telekomfussball.de in the next few days (German language only).
