Hitzfeld Praise Mario Gotze’s Ability
Former Borussia Dortmund coach Ottmar Hitzfeld praised the ability of Mario Gotze, and considered the player one of Germany’s greatest footballers.
The 25-year-old midfielder spent most of last season on the sidelines. Even so, he is now back in good shape, and Hitzfeld believes his presence will be a good addition to BVB ammunition.
“For me, he is one of the best footballers ever owned by German football,” the coach told reporters. “When he’s in shape and at his best, he obviously has good qualities.”
“When Gotze is in control of the ball, something can happen. He has a very high intelligence, he can see a gap that is not seen by other players. ”
“He can control the ball in ways that other players can not. He can also provide crucial passes, and is a threat to the opponent’s goal. ”
“He has everything that makes him worthy of being a top player.”
