Mario Gomez Confirms He’s Staying At Wolfsburg Despite Difficult Season

share on:

Germany forward Mario Gomez will stay at Wolfsburg despite their disappointing season where they managed to stay up only after winning a relegation play-off.

The 31-year-old scored 16 league goals in his first season at Wolfsburg but the 2015 German Cup winners finished in 16th place in the Bundesliga.

“Despite the difficult season where we missed out on our targets, I have the full trust in our team, the club and the fans,” Gomez said in a club statement.

“So I decided to play on here next season. The entire environment here will also offer me the best possible preparation for the World Cup.”

Club officials praised the forward whose goals in the second half of the season under coach Andries Jonker largely kept them from being relegated.

“Mario Gomez showed with his goals this season that he is not only a top striker but also someone who took over a lot of responsibility within the team,” said sports director Olaf Rebbe.
“We are happy to be able to attack the next season together.”
