Borussia Dortmund’s Mario Götze has labelled the Premier League ‘very attractive’ ahead of the German sides Champions League clash with Tottenham.

Dortmund currently sit five points clear of Bayern Munich at the top of Bundesliga and travel to Wembley to face Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham on Wednesday, who also potentially see themselves in a title race. Speaking to Goal, Götze revealed his adoration for English football’s top-flight due to the unpredictability of it, saying: “I can only judge from a Bundesliga perspective as I’ve only played in Germany so far. So, in that sense, it’s difficult to make comparisons.”

“As an outsider, I have to say that the Premier League is a very attractive league. In England, there are five, six, seven big clubs and you can never be sure who will win the title in the end. It’s very exciting.”

The 26-year-old also shared his admiration for his next opponent, revealing Tottenham have a ‘great project’: “Tottenham are very strong and have a great project. Pochettino has been around for a long time, they have players of tremendous quality who have been there for a long time too. It’s great to build on projects.”

“We played against Spurs in the Champions League group stage last year and we lost both games. We know how important the match is for us and how good our opponents are. It will certainly be an interesting clash.”
