Mario Götze’s brother bullied and forced to leave school, family home vandalised by Borussia Ultras

Following the announcement that Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Mario Götze had agreed to a £32 million summer move to rivals, Bayern Munich, reports surfaced that Götze’s brother was forced to leave school after being bullied, while their family home was spray painted by Borussia Dortmund Ultras.

GotzeFollowing a report by German newspaper, Bild that Götze had agreed to the multimillion pound deal, the first transfer of the Guardiola era and just a day before Borussia Dortmund faces Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final contest against Real Madrid, Dortmund fans were outraged causing the 20-year-old to go to and from Tuesday’s training with a police escort.

However ISF has learned that the abuse didn’t end there, as Götze’s brother was forced to leave school early after taunting and constant bullying from the other students over his brother’s “traitorous” move.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, it is also being reported that the Götze family home was vandalized by Borussia Dortmund Ultras who used spray paint to voice their inappropriate message in regards to Götze’s transfer.

The club has yet to comment on the incident, and the question remains on how the club plans to control the crowd and eliminate distractions for tonight’s clash, at Westfalenstadion, against Los Blancos, but one thing that has been stated as a possibility is suing several fans on twitter, where Gotze has received the most abuse.

According to Gotze’s lawyer, William Krekeler, under the German Criminal Code, Section 185, they have a right to press charges for fans calling Gotze, “Traitor, rat and Judas,” with fines anywhere from €10 to €400.
