Götze is at it again

by James Clancy

Mario Götze amendedViewed by many Dortmund fans as a “traitor” for transferring from Borussia to fiercest rivals Bayern Munich, Mario Götze has now worn a huge Nike swoosh on a t-shirt at his Adidas sponsored unveiling press conference with the Bavarian giants.

Three BVB-supporting rappers were inspired to write a song about him containing the lines “you dirty rat”, “you’re a Judas” and “we can’t wait for the day Grosskreutz fouls you” but Bayern Munich’s new €37 million signing has also come dangerously close to falling out with his new employers too, despite only being at the club for a matter of days.

His new club are sponsored by Adidas, who have a 9% stake in the club plus a chief executive (Uli Hoeness) on the board. Bayern have apologised to Adidas, who say they were ‘negatively surprised’ by the incident according to the Guardian newspaper.

It’s a far from auspicious start for Pep Guardiola’s first signing as manager of the Bavarian giants. Adidas have provided the Bavarian giants’ kit since 1970, after their new signing turned up to his official FCB unveiling with the logo of their main competitors splashed across the front of his t-shirt!

Oliver Brüggen, a spokesman for Adidas, told Germany’s leading tabloid Bild: “The pictures taken at the Mario Götze press conference have surprised us, negatively. Contractually it is not allowed: this was an official function of Adidas partners Bayern.”

Bayern’s spokesman Mark Hörwick told the paper: “We have apologised to Adidas on the phone. We have promised them that such a thing will never happen again.”
