Talking on the podcast Kicker meets DAZN, PSV Eindhoven forward Mario Götze wouldn’t rule out a move to the United States after finishing up his career in Europe.
Since 2020, Götze has played in the Dutch top-flight but rumours have been circulating that the World Cup winner might move to Benfica to join PSV’s manager Roger Schmidt when he moves to the Portuguese side in the summer.
This rumour is backed up somewhat by Götze’s way of thinking. The forward explained: “To be really successful, you need consistency in the coaching position. In Dortmund I had four different coaches in four years. It was always a bit of a back and forth. That wasn’t satisfying for me as a player.”
Speaking on the podcast, the 29-year-old said: “But my idea is as long as it is possible and I enjoy playing in Europe. And then maybe go to America. That would be great.”
At 29 Götze certainly has the ability to play in Europe’s top leagues as long as injuries don’t get in his way but a pathway to the United States is clearly on his mind.
