Gomez: Bayern blocked loan move to Liverpool

Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez claims the Bundesliga champions blocked a deadline-day loan switch to Liverpool.

Gomes, who has failed to hold down a regular first-team place at the Allianz Arena after joining from Stuttgart last summer. says he would have jumped at the chance of a temporary move to Merseyside to reignite his career. But Bayern were not keen to let him go and insisted the 25-year-old still has a big part to play under Louis van Gaal this season.

''I have said that if I leave Bayern I will go abroad,'' Gomez told the Bild newspaper. ''Then came this interesting offer from Liverpool. I took the loan offer seriously and discussed it with my family and girlfriend because I just want to play.

''But Bayern gave me the impression that they see a future for me. And therefore a change was not an issue anymore.''
