Duisburg (dpa) – World champion Mario Götze still doesn’t want to comment on his future.

Where and with whom is open. Most recently, rumors have circulated about the French former champions AS Monaco, club of coach Niko Kovac. However, Kovac had said the speculation was “0.0 percent off.”
Götze, the goalscorer for the 2014 World Cup, who recently changed advisers, can of course also envision a change within the Bundesliga. “The Bundesliga is also part of Europe and I never said I should leave the Bundesliga.

The attacking star is not primarily interested in money with his new goals. “The financial aspect only plays a minor role for me. The decisive and really important factors are the athletic factors,” said Mario Götze, looking ahead to the future: “I have ambitious goals and I absolutely want to win the Champions League. me. me every day, in every unit. I don’t want to end my career without winning this title once. “
