Again, struggling with FC Bayern, Gorze continued to develop his abilities. Even though the 2015/16 season was a season that wasn’t good enough for him, he kept trying to give everything.
Having felt enough adventure with Bayern, Gotze decided to return to Dortmund in the 2016/17 season. His return did not end sweetly. He was labeled a traitor by several Dortmund fans.
There were many fans who wrote anti-Gotze banners. Even so, he was still destined for Dortmund. Over time, fans understood the situation that Gotze was experiencing.
Besides being berated by Dortmund fans, Gotze also had problems with his condition in 2017. Gotze had to pull over at certain times because of a metabolic disorder that was found in medical test reports related to muscle injury.
