Germany international Mario Gomez will remain at Wolfsburg, both sides confirmed on Friday.
The 31-year-old striker will not leave the “Wolves” this summer, as he is fully committed to the task at Wolfsburg.
“In the last days we discussed the situation with those in charge several times. Despite the very difficult season, I have the confidence in our team, the club and the fans. I decided to play here next year,” Gomez said.

Wolfsburg almost dropped into the second division. However, they were able to edge second division side Braunschweig (2-0 on aggregate) in the relegation play-off matches to ensure another year in Germany’s top flight.
“Mario Gomez has not only once again demonstrated that he is an absolute top striker but he has also proved that he can greatly deal with responsibility within the team and the club,” Wolfsburg’s sporting director Olaf Rebbe said.
