Mario Gotze Ruled Out for Season & Dortmund Insist it's Good News

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Mario Gotze's metabolic illness will keep him sidelined until next season at the earliest.

But his career has gradually gone off the boil since then, culminating in the recent revelation he has a metabolism disorder.

"If he responds positively to treatment, Goetze can start back training in early summer".

Gotze released a statement after the news was revealed: "I'm now undergoing treatment and will do everything in my power to be back in training and helping my team to achieve our common goals as soon as possible".

Gotze was then sent for specialist help, with Dortmund's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke stating that it would not be a "short-term issue".

After rejoining Dortmund from Bayern Munich in the summer, Gotze suffered several injuries.

Gotze, who has managed less than half an hour on the pitch since the turn of the year, was diagnosed with what Dortmund called "metabolic disturbance" last month.

Castro is the third first-team player Dortmund have locked into a long term contract recently after Julian Weigl (until 2021) and USA teenage global Christian Pulisic (2020). "Kevin will always have a place with us and is part of the Borussia Dortmund family", said the club in a statement. The young superstar merely played 24 minutes of Bundesliga acting in 2017.
