In his attempt to return for Borussia Dortmund to play in the Champions League Final, Mario Götze reportedly did further damage to his injured hamstring.

When Mario Götze injured his hamstring in the second leg of Borussia Dortmund's Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid, his presence in the Final was always going to be in doubt. The midfielder finally started training again in the week leading up to the final, but he was unable to make the final due to a reaggravation of the injury.

Or so we thought.

There's at least one report out today that states that Götze's injury is worse than was revealed. It states that Götze actually suffered a muscle tear and will be out for around 10 to 12 weeks. While Pep Guardiola is wanting to get the team together on June 26 for his first training session, the likelihood of Götze being there isn't looking good.

Long term, the important thing is that Götze takes his time recovering from this injury to return at full strength for Bayern heading into next season. The depth is there to absorb his absence for some time, and there is zero reason to rush him back before he is fully ready.
