German midfielder Mario Götze, who left Borussia Dortmund at the end of his contract revealed that he is not aiming to bring an end to his career without a UEFA Champions League title. Götze is currently without a club and has time until the end of the ongoing transfer window to sign with a new club and resume his club career. 

The 28-year-old’s contract with the Bundesliga runner-ups ended on June 30th. Götze is not in a rush to find his new club as he believes the decision is crucial at this stage of his career and there are several key aspects to analyze. In a recent interview with Kicker, he said:

With several attacking talents such as Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard making their way to Borussia Dortmund, the German International’s playing time diminished with only 15 league appearances to his name, out of which 10 were off the bench.Götze asserted that the financial aspect is not as important as playing football. He added:

“In the past, even before the Corona outbreak, it was often presented as if my main concern was money. That was and is not the case. The financial aspect only plays a subordinate role for me. I want to compete, prove myself at the highest level and show that I can help every team. My longing for football is very great. “

Champions League is the ultimate prize for Götze

The 28-year-old who netted the lone goal in the finals of the 2014 World Cup to hand Germany their fourth title, stated that he does not plan to retire unless he has won Europe’s most prestigious trophy. He added:

 “I have ambitious goals and I really want to win the Champions League. That drives me every day, in every session. I don’t want to end my career without having won this title once.”

As a result,  the player is aiming to play for an European club to keep his dream alive, which also includes Bundesliga, the only league he has competed in over the course of his career. He concluded:

 “I never said that I had to leave the Bundesliga. There are several ambitious clubs in Germany, “I just really want to play soccer again. The sooner the better.”
