The former Stuttgart chief Erwin Staudt has said that the comments made by the Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness about the former Stuttgart striker Mario Gomez are extremely laughable.
The Bayern Munich president recently criticised the 27-year-old striker by saying that his reputation makes him much more important than he really is to the team. He has also said that Mario Gomez is not as good as his reputation might suggest. Mario Gomez has become one of the best strikers in the world since joining Bayern Munich a few seasons ago. He played in more than 150 matches for Stuttgart before joining Bayern Munich.
The German giant finished as the runners up in all the three major competitions they participated in last season, which has led to criticism from various quarters for the team and the manager.
The Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has become the latest to criticise one of the members of the team. Mario Gomez has become the victim for his criticism this time around. However, the former Stuttgart chief Erwin Staudt does not agree with the comments made by the Bayern Munich president and has said that Gomez is one of the best strikers in the world. There has been talk on a certain Liverpool forum that Gomez might fancy a move to the Premier League.
“We all know Gomez’s potential. Throwing the hammer at him is needless and unnecessary, to say the least. Yes, it admittedly might be a newer form of motivation aimed at spurring him on, but Mario is a really good guy who knows what he’s got,” said Erwin Staudt in response to the comments made by Uli Hoeness. Mario Gomez has an excellent record for goal scoring with Bayern Munich in the last few seasons. In just 142 appearances, he has scored more than 94 goals for the Bundesliga club and has also lifted four titles in the last four seasons.
