Borussia Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre has said that midfielder Mario Gotze cannot play for his team. The specialist also expressed his opinion on the second player of Dortmund, Julian Brandt.
Borussia Dortmund will face Wolfsburg in the 27th round of the Bundesliga. Lucien Favre’s team has 54 points and is 4 points behind the tournament table’s leader Bayern.
“Right now we are playing with a 3-4-3 scheme in which, unfortunately, Mario can’t fit. We should be honest. Of course, he can also play on the left or right-wing, let’s see. There are a lot of matches ahead, and we hope for each player.
For example, Julian Brandt can play in different schemes in different positions. Scheme 4-3-3 differs from 3-4-3, but it handles well. In the Champions League against Prague’s Slavia, he played as a striker. I liked it because having such a player gives the coach more opportunities, ”said the 62-year-old Swiss specialist.
27-year-old Mario Gotze has been defending the dignity of Borussia Dortmund since 2008. But the player spent 2013-16 in Bayern Munich.
In the 2019/20 season, Mario defended the dignity of Borussia Dortmund in a total of 14 matches of Bundesliga and played only five times in the main squad. He has scored three goals.
