In 2016, he returned to Dortmund, but says he regrets his decision.
"Probably the decision to go back to Dortmund. I should have made a different decision then. I had one or two other options and I visited Jürgen Klopp in Liverpool," recalled Gotze.
"It would have been good for me to go abroad after playing in Dortmund and Bayern. What I did then was four years later I just found a new setup."
Gotze is now playing in Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt.
