Bayern Munich midfielder Mario Gotze has hailed Pep Guardiola as 'unbelievable', saying the Bayern coach has unbelievable quality, according to Goal.
Gotze and Guardiola both moved to the Allianz Arena in the summer and the young midfielder has been impressed by his trainer's positive influence.
"It’s obvious Pep Guardiola has unbelievable quality. He’ll help the team and every individual develop. Our aim is to play even better than last year’s Bayern," Gotze told the official club website.
"My expectations have definitely been met. I wanted a new challenge, to learn new things and a new philosophy, and it’s been very exciting right from the start."
The former Borussia Dortmund attacker came off the bench in Bayern's 4-1 win over Mainz on Saturday and put on an impressive display. Gotze admitted he doesn't mind where he plays, as long as he gets playing time.
"I’m not bothered about my position. I can play as a wide midfielder, an inside forward, a playmaker, or up front. Fortunately, I’m very versatile." said the 21 year-old.
"The only thing that matters to me is to get back to playing for an extended period of time. The more I play, the fitter I’ll become. The playing time I had with Germany in Sweden and now for Bayern against Mainz has done me the world of good."
The German youngster is touted as an excellent prospect for the future and, having already garnered a considerable degree of experience from his time with high-flying Borussia Dortmund, has pedigree beyond his years.
It will be interesting to see how Guardiola works Gotze into his setup in his debut season, as the Bavarians have a squad bursting at the seems with world-class ability.
Gotze and Bayern are in action on Wednesday night in Group D of the UEFA Champions League, when they host Viktoria Plzen in Munich.
