Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Mario Götze has been told to withdraw from all football related activities indefinitely by his club following diagnosis of ‘metabolic disturbances’.

A statement on the club’s website read: “Borussia Dortmund will continue to be without midfielder Mario Götze for the time being. The 24-year-old World Cup winner has continually suffered with muscular problems in the last few months, prompting a comprehensive internal investigation into the possible causes. Those investigations revealed the player has metabolic disturbances, rendering it absolutely necessary to withdraw him from team training for the time being.”

Speaking on his condition, Götze said: “I’m currently undergoing treatment and will do everything in my power to be back in training and helping my team to achieve our common goals as soon as possible.”

We wish him speedy recovery.
