Statement: Media reports regarding Mario Götze
FC Bayern München has demanded that various media sources cease and desist from reporting false claims. It has been reported that FC Bayern has "threatened" Mario Götze by stating he would not be nominated to play in the Champions League if he remains at the club.
FC Bayern München AG chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge commented: "This is complete fiction. It remains the case that we will resolutely defend ourselves against all false or even malicious reporting using all legal means available to us."
