GOMEZ EXCITED FOR RETURN
The German international and Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has said that he cannot wait for the return to the first team action. The 27-year-old has missed the first few matches of the pre-season and the season itself due to an injury. He suffered the injury in the pre-season. As a result, he had to undergo a minor operation. Now, he is expected to return to the first-team action in the next few weeks. He has spent the last six weeks in the injury table, which has been very frustrating according to the former Stuttgart man.
Mario Gomez is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world and he scored more than 35 goals in all competitions for the German club last season. He is once again expected to be the spearhead of the Bayern Munich attack this season, despite the fact that the club has signed a few players like Claudio Pizarro. They were expected to replace the striker in the first few weeks of the season. Now, that the star striker is back from injury, he is expected to go straight into the first-team action. Mario Gomez scored 26 goals in the league alone last season.
Despite being an excellent season personally, the striker recently expressed his disappointment at not being able to win any major title. Even more disappointing for the 27-year-old was the fact that Bayern Munich managed to go extremely close to winning a title, but did not manage to win at least one. They lost in the league to Dortmund, while it was a similar case in the DFB Polkal cup as well. They were very confident of winning the Champions League title on the home ground, but were beaten by Chelsea 4-3 on penalties in the final of the competition.
