IS GOMEZ THE NEW MESSI?
Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has said that the team has achieved a lot of things in the first half of the season, but they need to maintain that in order to remain competitive in the second half as well.
Mario Gomez has been one of the revelations for Bayern Munich this season and he has scored a number of goals for the German club this season.This has led to comparisons with Barcelona star Lionel Messi, although Mario Gomez has been quick to dismiss any such suggestions. He has said that one of the main reasons for his spectacular performances this season has been the form of his teammates.
He says that they have assisted him in such a way that it is much easier for him to score the goals. The German striker also says that he would get a chance at Bayern Munich only if he continues to perform regularly this way. If not, then he would soon find himself playing for a club outside the Champions League. The 26-year-old was at the Bayern Munich training camp in Doha, and has said that the assist from the team mates has helped him a lot when it comes to scoring goals this season.
“If you play in a team which has harmony and which functions well as a team and play successfully, the striker will receive far more opportunities to score and that’s when scoring comes automatically. It’s true that strikers are measured by the amount of goals they score and the only way to defend your spot in a top team is to play well and score goals. Nonetheless the team’s success is always the most important thing,” he further added. Mario Gomez has so far scored 16 goals for Bayern Munich this season in the League alone.
