Mario Götze has often played in defensive or central midfield. However, coach Oliver Glasner could now have found a completely new position for the newcomer at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Idol in the center? Eintracht Frankfurt’s new signing Mario Götze could be used in the center by coach Oliver Glasner in the coming season, as “SPORT1” reports, right next to the sixes and / or eights. This would put the 30-year-old in a rather unfamiliar position, after all, the tenth position behind the leaders is considered his prime role.

Short, compact, clear

Glasner’s tests before the start of the season: However, Glasner does not guarantee that Götze will play in the centre. In the preparation, the coach is only concerned with “looking at different variants and having impressions in case of an emergency.” The 47-year-old says: “That’s why Mario played a little deeper and then a little further forward.”

Fan favorite Götze: Götze not only enriches the Eintracht-Elf, but also their fans. 100 to 150 supporters traveled to the training camp alone to get autographs and photos with the 2014 World Cup final goalscorer.
