In an interview with GQ speaks FC Bayern player Mario Gomez openly about the dark side of the football business, “Football does not accept meritocracy. The rule is: You have to win.What is overlooked is that some do not cope with this pressure “
Gomez is talking about a year ago when the 25-year-old went through a footballing crisis and had to spend some time on the bench: “If you each day are training and you know that you have no chance to gamble, then it hard to motivate yourself. You have to do the best for the team - without really any help. I said to myself: My goal was not to spread any foul mood. Because that would jeopardize the success of the team.
He was able to overcome the drop in form largely thanks to his ambition: “I have kept the faith in me, because I know that I would score goals in every club in the world when I’m healthy and playing. So that is what motivated me. . Also, it requires a strong family and good, honest friends “how well a player is should be weighed in football not in money - a statement that the German-Spanish means makes referring to his transfer fee ” market values are so fictitious that they do not interest me at all. Really not."
THE MOST INTERESTING PART
What irritates Gomez, however, is the great public interest in his hair: “I do not understand the fuss. At the beginning of my career, I had short hair, then I’ve worn it long and at times played with headband, what are they all excited about . Now I wear it short again, and people discuss it . I cut my hair for myself and not for anyone else. "
