Mario Gotze uses bizarre analogy to describe his poor form

If you say so, Mario

Mario Gotze has had a tough time since scoring the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final.

The German playmaker fell out of favour under Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich, and there have been reports that his successor Carlo Ancelotti isn’t too pushed on the 24-year-old either.

Gotze’s woes at club level appear to have followed him onto the international stage, and he put in two underwhelming performances for Germany against Ukraine and Poland at Euro 2016.

Ahead of Germany’s final Group C game against Northern Ireland on Tuesday, Gotze was asked about his poor form, and his response shows that he hasn’t completely lost his creative spark.

He may not ever become the “German Lionel Messi”, as he was dubbed when breaking through at Borussia Dortmund, but with philosophical musings like that, Gotze could just yet become the “German Joey Barton.”
