Mario Gotze

In Dortmund there are still fans, who are angry and annoyed with former crowd favourite Mario Götze for leaving Borussia Dortmund to join rivals FC Bayern Munich in the summer and a planned BVB farewell for Götze ahead of the German Super Cup on Saturday has been cancelled by the club due to fear of trouble.

Mario Götze is still recovering from a muscular injury suffered against Real Madrid in the second-leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinal late last season and has not played a single minute for FC Bayern, though he has started his rehabilitation.

And Saturday was supposedly marked to end the feud that had arisen due to the Götze transfer between the two German clubs. Eventually, they had to call it off due to widespread prediction of there being crowd trouble in the stadium.
