Mario Gotze’s profile in 2011 (after starting new game, patch 12.2)

Mario Gotze’s scouting report from Cagigao of Arsenal

Mario Gotze’s profile aged 26 in the year 2019

Mario Gotze’s career history until 2019

This FM 2012 player profile of Mario Gotze shows how the wonderkid turns into a Messi like prodigy. Just check his profile from 2019. The resemblance to Messi is uncanny and bar a little less quality this kid is the nearest we’ll get to Messi on FM 2012. You have to spend in excess of £75 million for such talent, a ridiculous amount but if you;re City its worth the investment! The only short fall presents itself in the form of finishing, if Gotze had better finishing ability he’d be the complete player.

Best buy rating: 10/10

Wow he’s great! Is he the best player in FM?
Oh and Darren, you’re writing great guides go on with this! I hope there will be guides about Ganso, Hazard, Neymar, Sandro, Jones and Wilshere!

He is one of the players where “world class” appears in descripion on his information site if he develops well.

Sensational guides Darren, really enjoying the read!

Had a quick reccomendation question playing with Arsenal, Eden Hazard or Gotze to play in a three pronged attacking midfielder role alongside Willian(immense player!) and Douglas Costa with Van Persie up front?

Hey Darren. I’ve got a question. I’m using Tottenham with a 4-5-1 formation. I have Gotze & about to buy Hazard. Because I don’t use AMC’s, do u think it would be effective if I move Gotze to AMR & use Hazard as an AML IF?

bought him in malaga for 23.5 mil, he said he wanted a challenge.
i could have got him cheaper but i was desperate

Bernard

I couldn’t seem to get good, consistent performances from him until the 2014/15 season. Now that’s when he burst on the scene. 11 goals and 27 assist in all competitions and the season is not even over, bloody hell.

Bernard
Guest

any tips on developing the guy. He’s still 23 in my save but hasn’t progressed much.

Ckelly

I remember in fm11 Dortmund got relegated and I bought this guy and kagwaya for about 5 mill each for Celtic. Best team I ever had with them In the team. Champions league finals etc. To much for me now lol. Was unreal for me though like 20 something assists and like 10 goals a season lol

Have signed Gotze for my Chelsea save. I’m playing him down left hand side as a winger.Also in the centre alongside Hamsick both playing really well.
One player I would love too see featured is Jack Rodwell.

Firstly, this site and your player profiles have helped me no end, Darren. FM12 is the first I’ve bought of this franchise and before even buying the game I felt like an expert because of this website. Keep up the good work. On Mario Götze, his stats to start of with are incredible and this profile shows he goes on to be (probably) the best in the world. I’ve started a save with Manchester United and edited my budget so I’ve got £33 million and £180k wage budget remaining. After I’ve sold some of the deadwood I’ll have at least… Read more »

Apologies for the double post.

If you get a chance could you make a player profile for United youngster Ravel Morrison? In real life he’s widely regarded as the best talent of his generation but off field issues could prevent him from making it in the first team. On FM12 it says ‘has the potential to be a quality player, 3.5 stars’ which is very promising, but if you could post a screenshot showing him at his peak that would be great so I could see how far he can go.

No worries if you don’t though. Cheers.

Hello Darren,
I’m new to the FM genre and I’ve been particularly amazed at your disposition to help fellow players.
Compliments aside, my team is the M.Utd. and I went well on the preliminary games, defeated Madrid 0-3 on Santiago Bernabeu. Recently I rejected an offer of R$65million for Ganso from Santos (about £25million I think). On that moment all my savings were not enough to pay his price, do you think I was dumb not to have asked the directory for more? Or at least, will he be available in the future?

I’ve signed Niang, Fierro and Erik Torres so play 4:3:3 with bressan, yterd Jensen and cristieg in mid. Works well I’m WBA and beat Chelsea 9-2 away and Niang got 5! However still only finished 5th as strikers inconsistent. Any thoughts? Should I play 442 instead and use on as a super sub?
Loving all the work mate!

Ps gotze looks immense! Never gonna get him at west brom!

Hey dude! I wrote on ur douglas costa post about him in my utd save…took a break and now im back, second season…all main wingers + strikers have 10 goals each…I spent 12 mil on eriksen who is IMMENSE(better than hamsik as a playmaker, gave 30 fr hamsik…im an idiot) and now its January and Shitty got Hazzard, Chelsea got Neymar and im 3 points ahead…so I am either getting kagawa for free or spending money on gotze( gt 60 mil)…suggestions? Plus, Gotze’s best position is? Idealy it’d be winger cause I already got 2 great playmakers. (last thing before… Read more »

Mario Gotze in my save, is a beast. I have trained him in finishing with the individual training and managed to raise his finishing to 14 and he is still 22 yrs old. Scored hat trick

Harry Ross

thanks a lot mate for this site, its great and its influenced a lot of my signings, im with psg in the second season and i’ve been given enough money to bring some world class players in, i have pastore, but do you think its worth getting gotze? thanks a lot

Josh
Guest

Hey Darren! Thank you a lot for your information of Wonderkids from your website. I found a bit Wonderkids that maybe worth. Could you check Zakaria Labyad, Pablo Sarabia, Kenneth Zohore (Must add Danish league), Acquah from Palermo, Diego Rubio, Jose Campana, Jordi Amat and Fabricio from Paranaense?

ifootball manger 10 or 11 when i first got gotze when his stats wasnt that great and my brother and friend laughed at me and i made him a monster i was like WTF why don’t i hear about this guy( didn’t get the German league) he was a starter on my team and i loved him i was so proud when i saw him on goal.com and saw he was living up to his potential now i cant get him for my juventus side, i cry every time i play, 3 seasons in and a bid of 88 mill… Read more »

I signed Gotze in my first season for Man Utd for £46mil and he is incredible I trained him in finishing so it is now 15, last season he got 33 assists in 45 games. Get him he is amazing

darsnider
Guest

ok no offence but stop spouting lies gotze is impossible to get no matter what the price if you spend less than 100 mill for gotze no matter how many seasons in your hacking or dortmud got relagated i cant get him for any less than 130+ mill and this is 5 seasons in that how dealdy this guys is

darsnider
Guest

no what i mean is he is extremely hard to sign when some people scream they got him on a cheap its impressive i guess you have to be top flight to get him because even if you offer small intervals dortmund refuse to release him his worth just keeps going up and up its crazy maybe its becuase im using juventus but they dont budge one bit

Darren, first of all; you have no idea how much time I spend on your site – it is truly the holy book of fm 2012 for me (and I suspect for a tonne of others too), so a massive, massive thank you from south east asia (it can’t be said enough). Quick ques; I have a 4-2-2-2 with an AML and AMR. I have both Gotze and Hazard. I’d like to play them as IFs with hazard on the left and gotze on the right as per the suggestions above. However, their reports say they are best as AP… Read more »

Comparing Gøtze to Lucas Moura, which one of them would you advice me to use as CM and which one on RW?:) great job mate!

Niclas
Guest

Could i use moura in front as treq instead? I will try to cooporate them into a barca look alike tactic. Then moura in messi’s role?

Niclas
Guest

Okay thanks for the answers. I know that you did not made the profile of him, but do you think that Xhaka could be considered one of the best midfielders in the game after a couple of seasons, IF he received the right training? I am asking because I consider buyibg him to my liverpool team.

Imp
Guest

why would you train him on fin when he is best advanced playmaker in game just retain him to mc position ..please check hes atributes as advanced playmaker atack no player have so high stats in that position and hes only 19 ?

Imp

ok i am teling you that he is the best advanced playmaker in game here is a ss wiht important attributes highlithed

Imp
Guest

i am just trying to find best players in every position according to their attributes for that position.and for me the point of this game is to folow that rules i mean why would you spent 5 years to make him good finisher when he is allready +17 as advanced playmaker and i will probaly make that even higher wiht good training and there is no other player in this game that can do that even ganso and hamsik.i know how good he is as winger but i am trying to make him best playmaker ever.

Imp
Guest

ok i know what are you saying and i know that some atributes are harded to train then others,so let this be a test than. i cant find anyone else tried this and if i manage to make hes +17 advanced playmaker atr to +19 not focusing on finishing then i will have next xavi in middlefield and you will have nice ss here :)

hi! first of all i want to congratulate you for the great job you’ve done here! keep up! second of all, i really don’t know what to do. i’m on my first season in arsenal and i’ve signed so far jordi alba, mats hummels, marouanne fellaini, ganso and willian. i play on a 4-5-1 formation with szczezny, alba, vermaelen, hummels, sagna, fellaini, ganso, wilshere, willian, walcott and van persie. as you probabily know even though walcott is a terrific player, is technique is not the best. i think is a great player to enter in the middle of the second… Read more »

what i want to ask is: can i buy gotze in the beggining of my 2nd season for no more than 80 mil €? and assuming i’ll make 50 mil untill the 1st of july, will the board give me 60 more mil or will they just give 10 mil so it equals 60?

i’d really love if you could help me here :)

Justcantwintheleague

I bought gotze at £50mil, £105k/wk for Newcastle when he’s 25. In return, he gave me a miserable 6.73 season rating. I’d played him in every attacking position possible, and I’m convinced he’s the epic flop. I collected the champions cup and domestic cups the season before, so I must be doing something right, until this guy showed up. I’ve no idea why this god of Dortmund plays like a goat for me.

Imp
Guest
ok listen you should play gotze as left inside forward and train finish and tackling ,he is best player on that position in game,and when i play against stronger teams 4-5-1 counter tactic he wins every single game alone——— also sory daren for me trying to play him on cm that was stupid, cm playmaker is much more then creat passing and other highlithed atributes i found out 1 more very important thing and thats diffrence betwen acomplished and natural position thats why ganso sucks on cm as advanced playmaker he never bosed midfle like ayew and martin{best playmaker in… Read more »

Dortmund will let me have him for 120mil which is a bit rich for my taste…my 60 mil budget will not stretch to that. so i’m sticking with hazard on the left and developing sterling and joel valencia on the right,,,shame but unless the price drops significantly i wont be buying him.

luciano
Guest
what should i do? im playing dortmund on my 15/16 season, and i think i have wasted his talent :(. on my firt look at his skills i thought the best way to deal with his poor finish was to let it that way and center on his strenghts. i didnt realize i could have made him a messi like prodigy :(. now his fin and longshot are 7, but his pace 16 acc 19 agi19 bal 15 str 15 sta 16 cre 20, dec off pass tech dribb ftouch 19 ant 16. its nice but he keep wasting chances… Read more »
