Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund has extended the contract of their teenage sensation Mario Goetze by another two years until 2016. Goetze follows coach Jürgen Klopp, Director of Sports Michael Zorc, Management Head Hans-Joachim Watzke besides team mates Sven Bender, Lukasz Piszczek and Ivan Perisic who all had extended their contracts until 2016, while Marco Reus joins the club in the summer from Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Dortmund is trying to secure their long-term future and they see Mario Goetze as a key element of this plan. The 19 year old from Memmingen in southern Germany is happy to remain at Dortmund where he feels at home though having had offers from FC Arsenal and FC Bayern Munich.

Goetze is seen one of Germany’s biggest young talent, who is currently recovering from an injury. Goetze hopes to be fit again in about 10 days time after having missed a few weeks of match action.

On the contract extension Goetze said, “Everyone knows how happy I am here in Germany. The team is currently in a developmental stage and I want to continue to be a part of this development.”
