Mario Gomez: Played his first league game of the season on Saturday

Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez savoured a "personal highlight" after marking his return to action following a lengthy injury-enforced absence with a goal in Saturday's 5-0 Bundesliga thrashing of Hannover.

Making his first league appearance of the season, the Germany international needed only 30 seconds to open his account after coming on as a substitute.

"It's incredible how happy a goal makes you feel after three and a half months without football," he said.

"It was a personal highlight for me, a great feeling, even if it was not so meaningful for the team since we were already 4-0 up.

"I try my best and offer myself. The coach knows what he is doing, and he does the best for the team, and all I can do is be there when he needs me."

The result extended Bayern's lead at the top of the table to nine points over second-placed Borussia Dortmund, but above all it dispelled fears of a crisis after two draws.

"Of course the team is not happy after two draws," Gomez said on Sky television.

"You want to show a reaction and give an answer to everything which is being said outside."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
