Due to the circumstances surrounding his departure in 2013, Gotze telling the club’s official website: “When I switched from BVB to Bayern in 2013 that was a conscious decision that I will not hide myself behind today.
“Three years later, and at 24, I look with different eyes at my decision. I can well understand that many fans could not understand my decision. I would not even take it today!
“When I return to my home, I want to try to convince all people with my performances – especially those who will not receive me with open arms. My aim is to again play my best football. For all of us, the club and the BVB fans. “
