Wolfsburg can’t afford to let go Mario Gomez

Mario Gomez is hands down the most influential player of Wolfsburg as the 31 year old German forward has scored 12 goals in 26 appearances which is way more than any other player of the relegation threatened club.

YunusMalli is 2nd top goal-scorer of Wolfsburg with 6 goals scored so far.

There is a clear difference between Mario Gomez’s goal-scoring contributions and the rest of his teammates in this current season and for a club that is battling just to stay alive and survive for another year in the Bundesliga.

August 17 of 2016 was the date that Mario Gomez joined Wolfsburg as he penned a contract which extends until 2019 but the German player is believed to be interested in wanting to compete in either the Europa League or the Champions League and this is something that is clearly not going to be occurring with Wolfsburg in this season as they are just barely staying alive in the top tier German League.

The contract that Mario Gomez signed with Wolfsburg allows him to leave the German club earlier than 2019 but only if they fail to snatch a qualification spot to any European competition and this is what is currently happening. The 31 year old German attacker has a desire to perform in other highly rated tournaments which is not going to happen in this season with Wolfsburg and he has the chance to make an early exit from Wolfsburg and join a club where he can fulfill his objective.

Mario Gomez Signs for Wolfsburg to Return to Germany

After spending the last few seasons in Italy, Mario Gomez has managed to secure a return to German football after signing for Wolfsburg.

The German international has spent the entirety of his career in German football apart from the three years at Fiorentina. This was seen as a move that would reinvigorate his career after he had lost his place in the Bayern Munich team. It was not long ago that Gomez was the most expensive player in German football after his £ 35 million transfer from Stuttgart in 2009. He went on to make more than 170 appearances for Bayern in all competitions.

This period was also highly successful for the player in terms of trophies since he managed to win several league titles and the Champions League medal. Gomez had earlier won only one major honour in his career before his move to Bayern. Since the transfer to Italy, his career has been on a downward spiral. There was even a loan move to Turkish football that came about last season. His interest in scoring record with Besiktas last season is thought to have been one of the main factors in convincing Wolfsburg to pay this transfer fee.

Fiorentina defeated Hotspur to reach Champions League

Fiorentina took a major step towards reaching the Champions League via the Europa League competition after managing to defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on two legs in the knockout stages.

After a 1-1 draw in the first leg, Fiorentina were feeling confident that they can complete the job in front of their own supporters. Mario Gomez, who has been suffering from numerous injuries of late, turned out to be the hero of the second leg. He scored the club’s first goal in the 54th minute, while Chelsea’s on loan winger Mohamed Salah confirmed the victory with a 74th minute goal.

The arrival of Salah has been a major reason behind the recent spring in the step for Fiorentina. They have been able to close the gap to third placed Napoli. Another victory this weekend when they take on Inter Milan will eliminate one of their rivals for the Champions League spots. Gomez is almost certain to lead the line up and he is certainly benefiting from the presence of Salah. The Egyptian winger has been a breath of fresh air and he has already scored three goals in four league matches. Gomez says that the victory over Tottenham is a major statement of intent and he believes that the club can reach the final and possibly win it.
