Mario Gotze was feeling the love from boss Pep Guardiola after scoring in Bayern Munich’s 3-0 Champions League win over Olympiakos.
There was speculation that Germany’s World Cup winner could leave in the summer after venting his frustration over his supporting role at the club, but the 23-year-old was urged by Bayern bosses to stay on.
“I love Mario Gotze,” said Guardiola. “I have said it a million times and I will say it a million times. He is a super guy and a super character with a great attitude. Everything was easier after Mario’s goal. He is a top player and has enormous quality.”
