Jurgen Klopp has been on the news lately as world cup wining star player coming out to blame himself to have refuse Jurgen Klopp in the year 2016 after a wonderful spell in the league.
Mario Götze, a midfielder for Frankfurt, has spoken up about turning down Liverpool’s advances for him and has acknowledged it could have been the “wrong decision.”
After two years at PSV Eindhoven, Götze recently finalised a transfer to Europa League champions Frankfurt.
When he was younger, Götze was considered to be one of the finest players in the world of soccer, but due to a career hindered by injuries, he hasn’t quite reached the heights that were predicted for him.
Many athletes would consider their career to have been successful if they had scored the winning goal in the World Cup final.
However, the 30-year-old will probably be dissatisfied with how everything turned out.
The current Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp, was the player’s coach when he started his career at Borussia Dortmund.

After a great stint at Dortmund, Götze went to Bayern in 2013. However, injuries hampered his three-year stay in Munich, limiting his playing time to 73 times over those three seasons.
According to reports, Götze was interested in joining Liverpool in 2016, but the World Cup champion opted to return to Thomas Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund instead.
In an interview with SportBild, Götze described a prospective transfer to Liverpool in 2016 as follows:
“Liverpool had not made the Champions League in their first season under Jürgen, finishing ninth. It wasn’t the club that always played at the top, not even in prior years.
“Under Thomas Tuchel, Dortmund had previously enjoyed a strong season. BVB was improving.”
“Jürgen continued to construct something. In hindsight, Liverpool would have been preferable.
When Klopp was in charge of the Reds, he developed young prospects like Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino into elite players. It stands to reason that he would have done the same with Mario Götze.
In retrospect, if Götze had joined Liverpool under 2016, he would not have thrived in Jürgen Klopp’s high intensity, pressing style and might have suffered.
