During Saturday’s Bundesliga match between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich — the club that Gotze will join this summer — fans made their feelings clear. They’re hurt, and they’re angry.
The 20-year-old is a product of Dortmund’s youth academy, and when the news broke that he would move to Bayern this summer, fans were understandably shocked and enraged.
If the rising star can help deliver the Champions League title in May, perhaps that will make the pain of him signing with their biggest rivals sting a little bit less? Possibly, but even if BVB fans can find it in their hearts to temporarily forgive, they’ll never forget.
