Bad news coming from Dortmund today. Mario Gotze has been ruled out of training indefinitely due to a metabolism disorder. The team hasn’t clarified what exactly Gotze has been diagnosed for his privacy. After struggling with near constant injury problems for years, doctors found this to be the probable cause of Gotze’s struggles. Gotze hasn't played recently due to a injury as well, which is what led to this discovery.

The World Cup hero has struggled for the past few years. He had trouble getting into the Bayern squad in his three years with the team, although when he did play he was usually fantastic. It’s unfortunate it took this long to find a problem that was genetic in the young star. The BVB statement seems to be optimistic that he will return to training, just there is no telling when. I’m not a doctor, so I am not going to speculate on the seriousness of Mario’s condition.

We hope you get better Super Mario!
