Mario Goethe celebrates his custom debut at PSV in Eindhoven. The victory against Zwolle even hit the top of the table. Nine minutes later, the ex-international shows why the club signed him.
E.x world champion Mario Goetze celebrated his dream debut at his new club in the Netherlands. With his goal of making the score 1-0, the 28-year-old laid the groundwork for PSV Eindhoven’s apparent 3-0 (3-0) success at PEC Zwolle.
German coach Roger Schmidt’s team remained undefeated and took the lead in the championship in “Eredivisie” with 13 points in the fifth match.
Goethe used an inaccurate return pass from Zwolle pro Clint Lehman just nine minutes later and overcame German goalkeeper Michael Zetterer. Another German player in the team of Philipp Max played a role in the victory of PSV with a score of 2: 0.
Goethe plays 67 minutes
Max, who arrived from Augsburg for eight million euros, moved from the baseline to Cody Gakpo, who used the data 18 minutes later. Goethe’s strike partner Daniel Mullen made a preliminary decision to make it 3-0 before the break (39th place). It was PSV’s twelfth consecutive victory against Zwolle.
Coach Schmidt immediately reassured Goethe of confidence in the starting lineup, in the 67th minute he took him off the field because of the exact result. Before the game, he left open for a long time the question of whether Goethe could be a candidate for the starting XI.
“Mario isn’t 100 percent capable yet, it makes sense,” he said. In addition to Goethe and Max, the starting lineup of PSV were ex-Stuttgart players Timo Baumgartl and Swiss Yvonne Mvoga, who borrowed from “RB Leipzig”, which 30 minutes later repulsed a penalty by Reza Gochanneyhad.
In early October, Goethe moved to the top of the Dutch club and signed a two-year contract.
“It surprised me, but it could be a good decision. Mario has a coach who relies on him. If he is fully focused, a lot can be done, ”BVB director Hans-Joachim Vacke said at the“ sports studio ”on Saturday when Goethe moved to the Netherlands.
