Mario Gotze profile aged 27 in the year 2019

Mario Gotze career history until 2019

This FM 2013 player profile of Mario Gotze oozes talent. Gotze develops key attributes to be an AMC or winger, and he does so in style. Let me list the best ones out, 19 agility, 17 acceleration, 20 technique, 19 passing, 20 first touch, 18 dribbling, 20 creativity, 20 flair….OK I won’t list them all but you get the idea. This kid just needs to sort his finishing (which you might be able to do through individual training) and he’ll be deadly. Outstanding player and available for a great price of £29 million, I say great because he’s one of the best attacking players I’ve seen this year.

Best buy rating: 10/10

    23 million? Wow, did he get cheaper from last year

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2012

      He did, I think he cost more than double that last year.

  • comment avatar darock October 24, 2012

    Pure class! I’m actually surprised that Dortmund are willing to sell him

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2012

      I thought he was worth a report regardless of price but when I researched the rough asking price I was shocked.

  • comment avatar Rohan October 24, 2012

    just after seeing this i think i want to restart my game just to get him and gundogan and have kagawa with them to recreate dortmund at Utd with better forwards…..
    this is the first thing i’d do after the final game comes out…….
    Awesome Profile…….Awesome Player

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2012

      He’s certainly worth a new save game that’s for sure. :)

  • comment avatar Alexander Tommos October 24, 2012

    My favorite player from 12, still looking ace!
    just need to train his finishing up, though he seems to score quite a few goals even with his lacking finishing attribute.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2012

      I agree, he must be the best prospect surely.

  • comment avatar Tijmen Stronks October 24, 2012

    Even better than last year imo! And half of the price of last year! Such a greay player, the biggest talent by far!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2012

      Definitely, a bargain at that price!

  • comment avatar CJA October 24, 2012

    wow 22 million that’s a bargain!a must for any top team!also darren could you do a profile on lewandowski and rodrigo when you have currently deciding which one to get!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2012

      He is a bargain at £22 mill. We have already profiled Rodrigo, you can find that from the wonder kids list, I’ll look at the other player later but it may take a while as we have a lot of profiles to do. Definitely go for Rodrigo though.

  • comment avatar Mike October 24, 2012

    Been trying to sign hm on FM12, Dortmund wont let hi go for less than £100m

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2012

      SI have worked on the realism of asking prices for the new game so its the case with many players that they are cheaper this year.

  • comment avatar Brizzy October 25, 2012

    Hi Darren, could you have a look at a player called Josef Husbauer,a 22 year old CM who costs only 500k. Thanks

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2012

      He’s not improved enough to warrant one unfortunately.

  • comment avatar orestis October 25, 2012

    Hi darren.. could you hae a look on mats daehli and nick powell from man utd??? i need to know if its worth trying to develop them or not…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2012

      Daehli isn’t worth developing TBH but Powell certainly is. I don’t have a good enough future profile to do him justice yet but he’s a great player and will develop with the right guidance.

  • comment avatar Yankeejoshy October 27, 2012

    Shame that he’s near impossible to buy as bayern on fm12…did they make it equally hard to sign a player from a rival club in fm13? I can never stop him in matches…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 27, 2012

      I don’t think they have changed that so it should be just as tough.

  • comment avatar john October 28, 2012

    he’s better on the left or on the right wing?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 28, 2012

      He doesn’t prefer either, so it depends on your tactic and roles.

  • comment avatar Peter Chiu October 30, 2012

    how come no more Eden Hazard? is he getting worth?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 30, 2012

      Because Chelsea have just signed him and he’s unaffordable @ the start of the game.

  • comment avatar matt November 9, 2012

    with him on the left inside forward and cazorla cm Adv pm.. I was thinking about putting goetze as playmaker and focus passing down the left but im not sure maybe cazorla?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 9, 2012

      I’d have Gotze on left with passing down that flank and the German as playmaker also yes.

  • comment avatar isco November 14, 2012

    make a profit of isco

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 15, 2012

      He’ll definitely get a profile.

  • comment avatar Ross Howse November 23, 2012

    Darren i always get mario hes an absolute beast!

    but question, with your current newcastle tactic would it be wise to play him through the middle as the advance playmaker? or do you not think he will perform?

    Also just bought raheem sterling for £15mil whats he look like in the future?


    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 23, 2012

      You could use him there and he’d do well but I feel that position is a waste of his talent, using in one of the inside forward positions would be much better.

      Sterling has not developed in any of my saves which is incredibly frustrating as I know he can, just give him game time and he’ll be great.

  • comment avatar Ross Howse December 17, 2012

    This guy is shocking as an IF and winger. dosnt seem confident of beating players ever and his movement is poor, going to try him out as an AMC and see how it goes. neymar came in and just ripped up the left side and has formed a great partnership with my FB. Gotze is too inconnsistant and lazy form me would give him such a high rating

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 17, 2012

      That’s weird I’ve had completely the opposite experience. We all like different players but those attributes warrant the rating.

  • comment avatar Andy Thompson January 8, 2013

    Whats Gotze best position just brought him for man utd for 28 million as nani replacement i’ve played him AML he hasnt done well there so far he got subtituted as his fitness dropped very quickly then i played him AMC in formation 4-2-3-1 formation just behind the forward and he got injured

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 8, 2013

      Just check his coaching report, that will tell you his most natural position and role.

  • comment avatar P. Rubio January 18, 2013

    Bought him in my first season for PSG. Currently 3/4 done with my first season and for me he is a very inconsistent and during the games his body language is always anxious. Playing him as an AP attack in the middle of my midfield. Am I doing something wrong?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 18, 2013

      Well as far as I’m aware he suits AMC or one of the AM wide positions better, so adv playmaker MC may not get the most from him. Also remember players take time to settle, he may need a season maybe.

  • comment avatar P. Rubio January 18, 2013

    Okay thanks for the advice Darren, would you advise me making him cut inside, look for the channels, or have normal wide play when putting him at AMC or AML?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 18, 2013

      That would probably depend more on your tactic, but I’d maybe start with him cutting inside from the wing that is opposite to his strongest foot, give it three or four games and if he’s still struggling then maybe try moving into channels from the same position.

  • comment avatar P. Rubio January 18, 2013

    Okay thank you very much I’ll try it out.

  • comment avatar Lewis Breslin March 20, 2013

    hi lads.Always wondered how Thomas Muller will turn out in future seasons…i know theres no point of you guys profiling him because we are all aware of his talents.Hes most likely got a high price tag also.So goal/average match rating wise,how does he look in your saves?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 20, 2013

      Well in my test save he managed 11 goals a season for the first three years then it dropped to 6 and his average ratings were between 6.9 and 7.3…he has excellent mental attributes but the rest leaves too much to be desired IMO.

  • comment avatar Lewis Breslin March 22, 2013

    yes,he has insane mental stats for a young player at the start of the game.Im a fan in RL but im sure if i was going to pay 30mill for him in the game then there plenty of better options

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 22, 2013

      That depends on what you’re after, for the type of player he is, his age and the fact he’s already high profile I don’t think there are better options in that position cheaper…having said that you could get a couple of class lower profile players for that cash probably even more if spending wisely.

  • comment avatar ian April 17, 2013

    Anyone used him as an out and out right winger with any luck?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 17, 2013

      Not right winger, I’ve used him as AMR inside forward though…while he wasn’t prolific in front of goal he gained a tonne of assists.

    • comment avatar hlf April 26, 2013

      Used him occassionally as an IF on the right, was nothing special. My main tactic uses him as an AMC playing as an AP(A) in a 442 diamond. He gets so many assists and the occasional goal. I’ve got his finishing up to 13 after 7 months of training which is adequate for what I want him to be doing. He seems to love the big matches too, he’s been unplayable in matches against Bayern and UTD.

    • comment avatar dpk04 June 25, 2013

      I had used him as a RW in my real madrid save. He was absolutely unstoppable, would cross and pass with Cristiano Ronaldo on left, they would tear any defence. While gotze was an assist machine, ronaldo was goal scoring machine. You can play him on RW but make sure you have a finisher on left wing to score goals.

  • comment avatar Jimboola May 21, 2013

    You look at this guys stats and think great what could be better…then you see his PPM’s. Never had him yet. Will now.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 21, 2013

      He is a great player, my only flaw to hand out would be that he seems like more of an assist machine than a goal machine, but that isn’t always going to be a negative.

  • comment avatar dzsekk May 24, 2013

    Did he gained naturally 15 determination and 20 flair, or he got tutored by another player?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 24, 2013

      I couldn’t say, he was trained by the AI so its anyone’s guess.

  • comment avatar Dan Scutt May 31, 2013

    As a right winger winger would he be better as inside forward support or attack?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 31, 2013

      I wouldn’t know without trying but that decision would need to be made around the tactic, not the player anyway.

  • comment avatar Predrag Mihailovic September 25, 2013

    hey darren i gave up on training hes finishing becouse hes other attributes are progresing very slow ,also i am trying to make him natural on left atacking mid and its not hapening did anyone had success wiht that

    • comment avatar Darren Smith September 25, 2013

      That will take a long time to train him in that position I mean. As for finishing I too didn’t bother in the end as it just didn’t increase fast enough.

      • comment avatar Predrag Mihailovic September 26, 2013

        sorry for writing here cant find a way to send you pm
        i am looking for player like cleverly jordiy clasie natural cm with advanced playm suport
        i dont like thiago and maher is not working on that position hes amc ,can you help me ?

  • comment avatar Predrag Mihailovic September 26, 2013

    i will just go for thiago looks bether then ramsey and hamsik i dont know why i dont like him maybe becouse of hes low teamwork and workrate i need that in cm

    • comment avatar Darren Smith September 26, 2013

      He’s probably one of the best in that position to be honest.
