Mario Gotze took time out to help out one of his fans after a computer game rage went terribly wrong.
Mario Thissen sent a picture to Bayern Munich’s official Facebook page of his bashed PlayStation controller which he smashed up after missing a 90th-minute penalty with Gotze in FIFA 15.
In his message, the German told the World Cup winner it was his fault and that he owed him €49.90 for a new one.

And, surprisingly, Gotze agreed – messaging Thissen back saying sorry and promising to buy him a new control pad.
To miss a penalty in the 90th minute is a bitter moment. That makes you very frustrated and I can understand that. What happened to Thomas Müller? Do not simply throw your gamepad in the corner – that cannot do! I’ll order a small package (a small surprise) for you. Next time, I’ll do it for real. I promise!

All the best, Mario!
Gotze was holidaying in Hawaii at the time so it’s great to see the man who scored Germany’s World Cup-winning goal take time out to make a fan’s day.
