Jurgen Klopp is like a father figure to several Dortmund stars from his time there. One of them being German World Cup winner Mario Gotze.
Gotze had a great career at Westfalenstadion but moved to Bundesliga’s pre-eminent club in Munich to win the Champions League. However, his time there was a failure and the German returned from Bavaria to re-join Dortmund, where he has found his feet again.
Speaking to Bild recently, Gotze talking about Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and the kind of relationship they share:
He knew that I wanted to leave Bayern. Of course, we talked. He knows me very well and that I am always looking for new challenges,’
‘I often speak to Klopp,. He brought me to the first team when I was 17 and he made it all possible. We never stopped talking.’
