Mario Gotze: Aiming for a regular starting berth at Bayern

The 21-year-old has played just 29 games in all competitions since his arrival from rivals Borussia Dortmund in the summer, despite maintaining his high level of performance.

The German star, who is likely to play a key role for his country in this summer's World Cup, has notched ten goals, but his discontent could alert potential suitors across Europe, with Manchester United reportedly interested.

However, Gotze insists, despite his displeasure with his maiden season with the Bundesliga champions, he is determined to fight for his place in the side.

"Of course I am not happy (with his last for first-team action)," Gotze told BILD.

"But I will continue to work hard and fight for a place in the first XI.

"I hope I am able to regain the trust of the manager and play regularly from the start."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
