Yes. Because it seems like he's lost pace and acceleration and he'll probably never get that back due to his health problems. But he has good technique and he reads the game well, so he might be able to have more impact from a more withdrawn position.

I agree, though if he does manage to somehow regain his pace and acceleration he needs to move back on that wing. He's got the skills for a superb classic #10.

I was quite impressed with him against us today. Created two really good chances, showed that he can dribble well again, was very press resistant, made good runs off the ball, positioned himself exceptionally well pressing, and had really good decision making. He should probably be played as a number 10 now that he's back up to strength.

He really should've started, he's been one of Dortmund's best players for like a month now (if not the best). The decision to have him on the bench and sub in while Castro played 90min was truly baffling to me...

Whatever the idiotic reasoning behind it, I'm glad for it. We very well might not have won if Gotze had started. We completely lost the ability to play through Dortmund's press the moment he came on, and we were forced to just bomb it forward far too many times. It's not often that I see Hummels being forced to play a long ball to no one, and the maddening thing was Gotze didn't even need to sprint to force it. He just always knew just where to position himself in order to disrupt the buildup.
