Mario Gotze Will Buy New PlayStation Control Pad For Fan Who Broke His After Missing Penalty With Bayern Star

Mario Gotze Will Buy New PlayStation Control Pad For Fan Who Broke His After Missing Penalty With Bayern Star

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.

He said:

Hello Mario,

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!

FC Bayern Munich

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.
