Götze under scrutiny after Ajax-PSV: ‘Sometimes exempt from training, too non-committal’

After PSV‘s heavy 5-0 defeat against Ajax, the connoisseurs point out the role of Mario Götze. The playmaker was placed on the right in the midfield and then barely appeared in the play, saw Huub Stevens and Aad de Mos.
PSV had to do without outside players Noni Madueke and Cody Gakpo and decided to change the system: 4-4-2 with Carlos Vinícius and Eran Zahavi as a striker duo and Götze on the right. Of course, PSV could have gotten ahead early in the game. That’
s afterwards. Mario Götze should have played the center of course. PSV should have started with Bruma and Vertessen, said Stevens in conversation with De Cceit.
The Limburger saw that Götze in Amsterdam couldn‘t help his team. The fact that PSV runs so stout is Götze, it sounds. It has to stand up, especially if you miss other creative people. That’s what he was brought for. Zahavi should be able to bounce the ball at him. Then Götze can stab players away. That doesn‘t work out when he’s far behind Zahavi.
De Mos determined that Götze was dropping because he had to play Daley Blind. Götze didn‘t feel like that at all. To stop backs, you have to be aggressive. But Schmidt was juggling and PSV was back at the same time. According to the Hague analyst, the match winner of the World Cup final is under-stimulated in Eindhoven in 2014. At PSV Götze plays his matches, goes home and is sometimes exempt from training. That’s too non-committal, says De Mos. Jurriën Timber and Ryan Gravenberch can develop in an environment of 200, 300 international at Ajax. These are supported by Tadic and Blind, among others.
