Bayern OKs Mario Goetze recall

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has defended Mario Goetze’s call-up to the Germany squad, explaining it will aid the player’s rehabilitation from injury.

Mario Gotze has appeared 22 times for Germany and scored five goals
Mario Goetze is yet to make an impact at Bayern Munich due to injury.

Goetze, 21, has only played a handful of minutes for his new club Bayern Munich following his 37 million euro transfer from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

The Germany international missed most of pre-season with a thigh injury suffered during the Champions League semifinal between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in late April.

He played his first minutes for Bayern in their 2-0 victory over Nuremberg in late August, but less than a week later suffered another injury setback, picking up an ankle injury during the UEFA Super Cup victory against Chelsea.

Since then he has made only two brief appearances as a last-minute substitute leading Uli Hoeness to question Goetze’s inclusion in the squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Ireland and Sweden.

Hoeness told kicker: "For all involved, it would be better if he enjoyed two full weeks of training -- then he'd physically be where he should be. But that's my private opinion. I won't intervene."

On Monday, Goetze joined the national team in Cologne regardless, but Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer told Bild that it is in the player and club’s best interests for him to be involved.

"Uli Hoeness’ comments were spot on because we also want that Goetze trains hard to regain his fitness. You also have to see that nearly all of our players are away with national teams and therefore, over the next days, a normal training in Munich will not be possible."

Goetze, who last played for Germany on March 26, 2013, will also do individual training during his stay with the Germany team, Sammer explained, saying: "If we believed that his trip to the Germany would harm him, we’d have sought talks with Joachim Low. But we only see the advantages of the call up.

"[Normal training] would not have been possible in Munich. That’s why it makes perfect sense to join the national team. In addition, Loew has said he needs him."
