Leon Goretzka not sorry for celebrating against Schalke (AZ)

When Leon Goretzka scored his spectacular goal for Bayern Munich against his former team Schalke, he ended up celebrating the feat right in front of the Schalke fans. Afterward, Goretzka explained that he was not sorry about it:

That the Schalke curve was there wasn’t planned. But I’m also no fan of suppressing your celebration too much.

Goretzka said it would be “sanctimonious” if players hid their joy after scoring against a former club. “People can rightly be happy about it.”
