Soccer Star Blamed For Broken PS3 Controller, Replies Well

Illustration for article titled Soccer Star Blamed For Broken PS3 Controller, Replies Well

Mario Götze, international football star, nautical enthusiast and scorer of the winning goal in last year’s World Cup Final, is also a man who cares deeply about his fans who may be experiencing heartache playing...FIFA.


When fan Mario Thissen messaged Götze to tell him that the Bayern Munich star owed him €49.90 after his digital alter-ego had missed a 90th-minute penalty, resulting in Thissen smashing his controller, Götze actually replied. To apologise, and tell Thissen to check his PMs so he could send the guy a new DualShock.

Nice touch. Especially since, you know, it’s Thissen’s fault for a) missing the penalty and b) being the guy that takes it out on a helpless controller.


I wonder if Fernando Torres will follow suit...

Dear Götze,

Your digital alter-ego stole $1 million dollars from me in real life. Please compensate.
