Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Goetze has hinted he may stay with the club for the rest of his career.
The 20-year-old, who has emerged as one of the key players for Juergen Klopp’s side over recent seasons, said he sees no reason to move on from the Bundesliga champions.
“I feel very comfortable in the city of Dortmund where I have friends and family,” Goetze told der Western.
“That speaks volumes for BVB. My contract runs until 2016, so there’s no reason for me to think about anywhere else.”
The German international also believes his introduction into Dortmund’s first team has helped him mature both professionally and personally, but admits he cannot see where his career will take him.
“I want to win more titles and where that leads, I’ll see,” Goetze said. “There are some things you cannot control.
“I have turned my hobby into a career. I have developed, become more mature. I try to be normal and focus on the fun of football and there aren’t many things I’d rather be doing. I’m living out my dream.”
Dortmund trail Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich by 12 points at the midway point of the campaign and Goetze believes all the team can do is continue to pick up points in the hope that Bayern slip up.
“Whether we become champions depends a lot on Bayern, on us and on the other teams. We want to win as many points as possible in the second half of the season,” he said.
“It’s every footballer’s dream to be among the best, myself included. That should be the goal.”
