Mario Gotze has admitted that Bayern Munich are still hurting after their Champions League heartbreak but says he remains proud that Pep Guardiola’s men bowed out playing their possession-based brand of football rather than resorting to Chelsea’s preferred tactic of ‘parking the bus’.

The Bavarians were beaten 5-0 on aggregate by Real Madrid in this season’s semi-finals, slumping to a shock 4-0 loss at the Allianz Arena less than a week after a narrow 1-0 defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Guardiola and his players were criticised for placing too much importance on keeping the ball, but Gotze is glad that Bayern stuck to their attacking principles instead of trying to imitate the defensive tactics of a side like Chelsea, who were beaten 3-1 on aggregate by Atletico Madrid in the other last-four clash – despite battling their way to a dour 0-0 draw in the first leg at the Vicente Calderon.

“[The Madrid defeat] does hurt,” Gotze told his club’s official website. “We had a bad day in the second leg. But you shouldn’t forget how we played at Real Madrid when we dominated the game for long periods.

“Obviously, you can do it like Chelsea did at Atletico and park the bus in your own penalty area. That’s not our style. I’m firmly convinced we play football the way it should be played. And the way we play suits me perfectly.”

However, Gotze’s performances during his first season at the Allianz Arena following last summer’s €37 million switch from Borussia Dortmund have been the subject of much debate, with some pundits arguing that he has played poorly, with others claiming that he has not been properly utilised by Guardiola.

Gotze, though, is pleased with his debut campaign with Bayern has gone, pointing out that he has had to cope with a number of physical problems.

“[Joining Bayern] was a big step for me, there’s no doubt about that,” the Germany international mused. “Unfortunately, it was difficult at the beginning due to injury.

“But I really fitted in after that. I feel at home here now and I’m proud to be part of FC Bayern. I hope I can stay fit and healthy. I’ve got big plans for next season.

“At the end of the day football is football. Of course, we play with a different philosophy here at Bayern. But my ability hasn’t changed. I need to show what I can do and that’s what matters.”
