After the defeat of Germany at the World Cup in 2018, the German players experienced despair. Mario Gomez was no exception. However, the striker during his career at clubs and at the world level has faced ups and downs more than once.
Childhood and adolescence
Mario Gomez was born in Germany on July 10, 1985 in a German-Spanish family. Father Mario owes his Spanish surname and love of football. A true fan, Jose was a Real Madrid fan and spent evenings watching matches. The son preferred a boring time at the TV live game in the yard of the house. Often the boy chased the ball with his brothers or just practiced blows with both feet on the garage door.
Often the hobby ended with a broken pot of flowers or glass, but the parents did not scold his son, however, as never forced the boy to become a professional.
In an interview, Mario Gomez recalled that he first took to the field when he was 4 years old. Seeing the ball, I was eager to drive it into the goal. The kid genuinely did not understand why the other children, and then the parents shouted loudly that he was running the wrong way. As a result, it turned out that the young player scored a goal against his own team.
Then the father still introduced his son to the game of real professionals during the next television broadcast. The idol for the future scorer was J.J. Okocha, who struck the boy with skillful dribbling. And later, despite the fact that relatives were rooting for Real Madrid, Mario became an ardent fan of Barcelona. Among the favorites, except For Ronaldinho and Rivaldo, was Romario, because the name of the footballer was like his own.
As for most future great athletes, there was no other activity for little Mario than sports. Coming from school, he threw a backpack and raced outside with a ball.
However, according to the striker, he did not think about a professional career, playing for a local team. However, the talented athlete was noticed by Stuttgart agents. When the boy was 13 years old, representatives of the academy came to his father with an offer to enroll his son in a sports school. Then Mario did not want to leave his home and school, feeling that the time has not come yet.
A couple of years later, when Gomez's team lost 7-0 to Stuttgart, the player changed his mind, realizing that training at a reputable club would give much more experience and skills.
In the Stuttgart youth squad, the striker demonstrated excellent possession of the ball, ability to score with both feet and excellent work in the opponent's penalty area. Soon the scorer gets into the main line-up. At the age of 18, the player got a chance to be on the pitch in the Champions League match against Chelsea.
Mario recalled that he was influenced by Stuttgart coach Giovanni Trapattoni, who did not stay at the club for long. Silently watching the wards during the training, without showing approval or criticism, the mentor invited Mario for a personal conversation. Then Gomez heard that if he worked on some shortcomings, he would become a forward of the national team.
According to Mario, the coach's faith made him feel like a professional footballer. He begins intensive training under the guidance of Trapattoni. Stuttgart becomes the Bundesliga champion, and the striker receives a call-up to the national team and the title of the best footballer of 2007 according to Kicker magazine.
By the way, Gomez had dual citizenship, and the athlete received offers from the leadership of the Spanish national team. The striker had no doubts - he wanted to play only for Germany.
In 2009, he was transferred to Bayern munich for a record-breaking sum of 30 million euros for the Bundesliga at that time (according to some publications - 35 million). Mario admits that clubs comparable to Bayern have constant pressure when a player is expected to produce brilliant results. At the same time, the striker himself remained a rather ambiguous footballer.
Ideal physical data (height 189 cm and weight of 88 kg), work with both legs in the penalty area are combined with unexpected, albeit rare, misses (a shot on the goal of the Finnish national team in the national team, when the forward did not hit an empty goal from a meter distance).
In his first season in the Bayern team he failed to excel in talent, but the next time of triumph came, and the forward was recognized as the top scorer of the German league. In 2012, despite Gomez's recognition as the top scorer of the European Championship, the club was defeated in the Champions League final by Chelsea.
Then, according to the striker, he wanted something new, and the athlete went to Italy to perform for the honor of Fiorentina. Almost immediately there was a knee injury, which knocked the scorer out of the squad for a long five months. Taking to the pitch, the striker rehabilitated. However, soon the forward was again unlucky, and he got another injury.
In 2015, the striker goes to Turkish Besiktas on loan, where his career gets a new take-off. However, in 2016 the forward returns to his homeland in the Wolfsburg squad. According to the attacker, this happened solely because of the complicated political situation in Turkey.
In the quarter-finals of Euro 2016, mario Gomez, who was inspired by the team's success, promised to get married. The man kept his word, and in July of the same year the wedding of the forward and his new wife - model Karina Vantsung took place. The girl is six years older than her husband, and the newlyweds met five years before their marriage.
The ceremony in Munich was modest, only for immediate family and friends. The groom's best man is invited by a childhood friend. In general, the footballer prefers not to advertise the details of his personal life.
Mario Gomez now
In the 2017/2018 season, the striker returned to his native Stuttgart. Before that, the scorer refused the Chinese club Tianjin Xuanjian. According to Mario, Chinese clubs offer sky-high salaries, but the game in the Chinese championship is not part of his plans.
In 2018, the forward together with the national team took to the field of the World Cup in Russia and together with his colleagues survived a huge failure of the team, when Germany failed to get out of the group without winning a single match.
On the Instagram page, the striker apologized to the fans and shared the depressive mood of the players. Shortly before that, Mario Gomez said that the championship is likely to be the last in his career for the honor of the national team.
