Mario Götze releases children’s book

Mario Götze has written a children’s book titled “Marios Grosser Traum” or “Mario’s Big Dream” in English.

The book circles around a 10-year-old boy named ‘Mario’ who dreams of becoming an international star. Under the guidance of a former star player (resembling Germany manager Joachim Löw), the little boy learns that fame and winning is not everything but a part of the game.

Götze unveiled his new book on Tuesday at Germany’s Football Museum in Dortmund. He also read the book to a group of school students and provided them with autographs.

“Children are very important to me, because they are the future, so I decided to write a children’s book about respect, tolerance and open-mindedness.” said Götze.

The 25-year-old further added that he will donate all the profits from the book sales to Kids to Life, a Munich-based charity foundation that helps disadvantaged children and youths.

“They have set themselves the goal of giving young people a self-determined and fear-free future. This topic is very important to me, and I think the fundraiser fits well with the value-adding idea of the book,” added Götze.

The book is currently available and can be bought online
