Matthaus should stop trampling on Gotze, claims Dortmund chief – football news

Mario Gotze might not have played a single minute of competitive football this season, but he does not merit criticism from Lothar Matthaus, according to Hans-Joachim Watzke, Borussia Dortmund’s CEO.

Matthaus has come down hard on the player in recent days, indicating that if the player who scored the World Cup-winning goal in 2014 is to thrive once again, he will have to depart Dortmund.

The Germany icon says that level is currently “behind” the 26-year-old, who is “missing quality” and the opportunity to play in a position that he can thrive in.

Watzke, however, has taken exception to these comments.

“I know that Lothar Matthaus earns his money as a pundit and has to put forward provocative theories, but it would be nice, if one of the greatest players that Germany ever had, he could leave Mario alone and not trample on him,” the CEO said.

“Mario is doing the right things: he trains well, he does not let up, he gives to the team, he’s totally focused, he’s an important part of our squad and I’m sure he’ll play some great games for BVB this season.”

New head coach Lucien Favre has yet to use the playmaker, who was forced to watch in frustration as Dortmund beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1 on Friday.

“I know for sure that the coach has a very high opinion of him and will use him, as he clearly said after the match,” Watzke confirmed.

Since moving back to BVB in 2016, Gotze has managed fewer than 50 appearances and has mustered only four goals in all competitions.

Alcacer scores, hurts ankle on Dortmund debut – football news

Paco Alcacer scored on his competitive debut for Borussia Dortmund, but coach Lucien Favre revealed the forward suffered an ankle injury against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Alcacer joined Dortmund on loan from Barcelona late last month and his debut on Friday was a successful one.

The Spain international was involved in Marius Wolf’s goal and later struck from 20 yards to seal Dortmund’s 3-1 win, after Abdou Diallo’s opener was cancelled out by Sebastien Haller.

Favre said the 25-year-old still needed time, before revealing Alcacer hurt his ankle late at Signal Iduna Park.

“He hasn’t played all that much recently. He needs time to get to full fitness,” he said.

“We’re not sure exactly what happened, but at the end of the match he unfortunately felt some pain on the back of his ankle.”

Favre was pleased with the result, which took his team to the top of the Bundesliga table with seven points from three games.

”They were a tough team to play against. The lead we took in the first half wasn’t entirely undeserved but we were a bit lucky nonetheless. Although we controlled the match I wouldn’t say we dominated it,” he said.

“In the second half we were really eager to get the score to 2-0 as soon as possible, but we had a lot of trouble keeping the ball and controlling the match against the opposition’s pressing game. We lost patience and that’s what cost us our 1-0 lead.

“The substitutions gave us a sense of vigour. The goal which took the score to 2-1 was a really nice, well-worked goal. That’s when the team was firing once more.

“We’re really happy with the win.”
