Mario Gotze: Joining Bayern on July 1 in a 37m euros deal

Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels cannot understand why Mario Gotze chose to leave the club to join Bayern Munich this summer.

Gotze will officially become a Bayern player on July 1 after the European champions completed the 37million euros signing of the Germany midfielder - a deal confirmed by the Bavarian club on the eve of Dortmund's Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.

The timing of the announcement was frustrating to Dortmund, but Hummels was even more "annoyed" by its content.

"Everybody could see how good our team is," he said. "I just don't think there was or is any reason in sporting terms to leave us.

"You could see how our team had developed and Mario got on so well with many, which is why it annoyed me so much that he made up his mind that he had to leave so soon."

Hummels, who made the move in the opposite direction three years ago and has also been linked with a return to Bayern, has told Gotze how he feels.

"It came as a surprise to all of us in the team," he told Sport Bild magazine. "I have told him that."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
