Gómez began his professional career with Stuttgart. When the team won the Bundesliga in 2006–07, Gómez contributed 14 goals and 7 assists and was selected as German Footballer of the Year. In 2009, he signed for Bayern Munich for an estimated €30–35 million; back then a league record. With Bayern, Gómez was the Bundesliga top scorer in 2011 and helped the team win seven trophies, including the UEFA Champions League in 2013. He left for Serie A team Fiorentina in 2013 and was affected by injury during his time in Italy. Gómez was loaned to Turkey's Beşiktaş in 2015 and was top scorer as the club won the Süper Lig. He subsequently returned to Germany by joining Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg. The season he joined, he helped Wolfsburg avoid relegation. He returned to Stuttgart the season after, helping them achieve promotion to the Bundesliga after the 2019–20 campaign.

Gómez made his senior international debut for Germany in February 2007 and was included in their squads for three UEFA European Championships and two FIFA World Cups, finishing as top scorer at UEFA Euro 2012. He retired from international football in 2018.

Club career


Gómez played for VfB Stuttgart II in the Regionalliga Süd in the 2003–04[5] and 2004–05[6] seasons. He scored six goals in 19 appearances during the 2003–04 season[5] and 15 goals in 24 appearances in the 2004–05 season.[6][7]

On 9 March 2004, Gómez played ten minutes for Stuttgart in the Champions League first knock-out round against Chelsea[8] and made his debut in the Bundesliga on 8 May, coming on for Imre Szabics in a 2–1 loss to Hamburger SV.[9] These ended up as his only two appearances for the first team during the 2003–04 season.[10] He would go on to make eight league appearances,[6] one DFB-Pokal appearance,[11] and one UEFA Cup appearance.[11]

In the 2005–06 season, Gómez joined the first team permanently. He played 30 times in the Bundesliga, scoring six times at this level.[12] His first goal came on 17 September 2005, the winner in a 2–1 defeat of Mainz 05.[13] Gómez also played five times in the UEFA Cup,[12] scoring twice, and played three times in both the DFB-Pokal,[12] and DFL-Ligapokal.[14]

In the 2006–07 season, Gómez established himself as one of the top scorers in the Bundesliga. However, he broke his hand on 10 March 2007 and suffered a torn ligament in his left knee. He made his comeback on 12 May 2007 and immediately scored after coming on from the bench. In that match, Stuttgart defeated VfL Bochum (3–2) and went two points clear heading into the Bundesliga's final weekend, where they won at home against Energie Cottbus, thus becoming German champions. Further, Stuttgart also reached final of the DFB-Pokal, where Gómez participated, but Stuttgart lost to 1. FC Nürnberg. He finished the season with 14 goals in 25 league appearances and two goals in five DFB-Pokal appearances.[15] After the season, he was named German Footballer of the Year for 2007[16] and extended his contract at Stuttgart until 2012.[17]

In the 2007–08 season, while the rest of his team struggled to keep performing at their 2006–07 season standards, Gómez remained at an astonishingly high level, scoring 19 goals in 25 appearances,[18] second in the Bundesliga's top scorer list, just behind Bayern Munich's Luca Toni, who scored 24 times. In the DFB-Pokal, Gómez was the top scorer with six goals.[19] Because of his development, many big clubs became interested in the then-23-year-old forward. Gómez gained the nickname "Mr. Zuverlässig" ("Mr. Reliable"), as seen in his second of three goals against Bundesliga rival Werder Bremen (final score 6–3), where he managed to net in a virtually unreachable pass by teammate Yıldıray Baştürk. On 9 May 2009, Gómez hit four goals to inspire Stuttgart to a 4–1 victory over Bundesliga champions VfL Wolfsburg.[20] He also had six goals in three DFB-Pokal appearances and three goals in four UEFA Champions League appearances.[18]

The 2008–09 season proved to be his last in a Stuttgart uniform, as he would transfer to Bayern Munich after the season.[21] During the season, he would score 24 goals in 32 league appearances, three goals in two DFB-Pokal appearances, eight goals in ten UEFA Cup appearances.[22]


On 26 May 2009, Gómez eventually transferred to Bayern Munich for a Bundesliga record transfer fee, signing a four-year contract. The amount of the transfer fee varies from €30–35 million, depending on different sources.[21][23][24] Gómez was not scoring like his usual self in his first season for Bayern, with just ten league goals and one Champions League goal netted,[25] but in the DFB-Pokal, he was more prolific, with three goals in just four matches.[25] Gómez was also short in the assists column, as well. Quite surprisingly, he made an impact as he was to start the majority of matches next season for Bayern. Also in his first season, Gómez was teamed up with his German international strike partner Miroslav Klose to give him some first-team experience.

After an erratic first season at Bayern with 10 goals in 29 league appearances,[25] Gómez established himself as a starter during the 2010–11 season (to an extent at the expense of Miroslav Klose and due to an injury sustained by Ivica Olić) and finished as top goalscorer[26] in the Bundesliga with 28 goals.[27] He scored his 100th Bundesliga goal with his third strike in a 1–8 away victory over FC St. Pauli on 7 May 2011,[28] the hat-trick already being his fifth in the Bundesliga in the 2010–11 season, and his sixth overall, adding in his hat-trick[27] against CFR Cluj in the Champions League. Gómez has scored 13 hat-tricks in his Bundesliga career, three with VfB Stuttgart and ten with Bayern. Gómez also netted eight times in the Champions League[27] and finished in second place in the season's top scorers, tied with Samuel Eto'o,[29] although Bayern was eliminated in the round of 16 by Inter Milan. Gómez in all competitions scored 39 goals in his second season with the Bavarian club.[30]

2011–12 season

Gómez started the 2011–12 season in similar style towards the previous season and he opened his league account on 20 August 2011 in Bayern's thrashing of Hamburger SV.[31] Seven days later, Gómez scored a hat-trick away to 1. FC Kaiserslautern.[32] On 10 September, Gómez scored four goals in Bayern's 7–0 rout of SC Freiburg, sealing four-straight wins for the Bavarians and a return to the top of the Bundesliga table.[33] On 27 September, Gómez scored two first-half goals as Bayern defeated Manchester City 2–0 in the group stage of the Champions League.[34]

Gómez scored his second brace of the Bundesliga campaign against Hertha BSC when Bayern won 4–0. Gómez then recorded another brace on 29 October when Bayern then defeated 1. FC Nürnberg 4–0. Then, on 11 December 2011, he scored his third brace of the season and sealed Bayern's 2–1 win over southern rivals VfB Stuttgart, his former club.[35] On 2 November 2011, he scored a hat-trick in a Champions League group stage match against Napoli. Bayern went on to win 3–2. In the DFB-Pokal, Gómez scored just two goals. On 16 December 2011, Gómez scored his 50th goal for the calendar year of 2011, against 1. FC Köln.

On 10 January when Bayern Munich visited India to play in a farewell match of Indian footballer Baichung Bhutia, Gomez scored the opening goal for Bayern as Bayern Munich won 4–0 over Indian National Football team.[36]

On 13 March 2012, the second leg of their Champions League tie against Basel, Bayern Munich overturned their 0–1 away loss as Gómez netted four of Bayern's seven goals, firing the Bavarians through to the quarter-finals 7–1 on aggregate.[37] In the quarter-finals, Bayern faced French Ligue 1 side Olympique de Marseille and in the first leg on 28 March,[38] Gómez fired in his 11th Champions League goal of the campaign in a 2–0 win for the Bavarians.[39]

On 4 April, Gómez signed a new contract with Bayern Munich, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2016.[40][41] Gómez scored the winning goal in Bayern's 2–1 victory over Real Madrid in the first leg of their semi-final clash.[42] Bayern went on to win the tie 3–1[43] on penalties after the teams were deadlocked 3–3 on aggregate.[44] On 19 May 2012, he played in the Champions League Final against Chelsea. He failed to find the net in regular time in the game but scored in the penalty shoot-out as Bayern once again fell at the final hurdle, losing 4–3 on penalties after a 1–1 finish.[45] He finished the 2011–12 season with 26 goals in 33 league appearances, two goals in five DFB-Pokal appearances, and 13 goals in 14 Champions League appearances.[46]

2012–13 season

Gómez came back late to the squad, after having ankle surgery post UEFA Euro 2012.[47] Because of his injury and the stellar performance of Croatian striker Mario Mandžukić at Euro 2012, the Croatian was signed from VfL Wolfsburg.[48] The signing relegated Gómez to the bench and Mandžukić hit a run of form that made him the Bundesliga's top scorer.[49]

Gómez returned to action on 20 November 2012 in the club's 1–1 draw with Valencia in the group stage of the Champions League, coming on as a 79th minute sub for winger Franck Ribéry.[50] The striker scored his first goal within a minute of his Bundesliga season debut, slotting home after good work from Toni Kroos, capping off a 5–0 victory over Hannover 96 on 24 November.[51] On 5 December, Gómez opened the scoring for the hosts in their final group game of the Champions League, a 4–1 defeat of BATE Borisov which secured the Bavarians top spot in the group over Valencia.[52]

Following the winter break, Gómez pushed for a first-team berth, scoring two goals and setting up another as Bayern cruised past Werder Bremen 6–1 on 23 February 2013. The game was coincidentally his manager Jupp Heynckes' 1,000th game as a player and coach in the Bundesliga.[53] The striker was a used substitute against Eintracht Frankfurt on 6 April, as a lone Bastian Schweinsteiger strike confirmed an 11th successive victory and a 23rd national title for the club, Gómez's second with Bayern and third overall.[54]

On 16 April, in the DFB-Pokal semi-final against VfL Wolfsburg, Gómez scored a six-minute hat-trick after being subbed on in the 77th minute, rounding off a comfortable 6–1 victory and securing a spot in the final against southern rivals and former club Stuttgart.[55] In the club's next league match, on 20 April, Bayern managed another 6–1 victory and Gómez recorded a second brace in four days to lift Bayern to a 26th league victory of the campaign, a new Bundesliga record.[56] Gómez led the line in the absence of Mario Mandžukić to good effect, poking home Bayern's second goal in their 4–0 first-leg demolition of Barcelona in the semi-finals of the Champions League on 23 April.[57]

Despite missing the better half of the first three months of the campaign, Gómez still managed 11 Bundesliga strikes, placing him as third top-scorer in the league for the club. He made an appearance as a late substitute in Bayern's 2–1 Champions League Final victory over German rivals Borussia Dortmund on 25 May at Wembley Stadium in London.[58] He scored a second-half brace in the DFB-Pokal Final on 1 June as Bayern defeated Gómez's former club Stuttgart 3–2 at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.[59] The win secured a 16th DFB-Pokal trophy and an unprecedented league, cup and European cup treble for the Bavarians.[60] He finished the 2012–13 season with 11 goals in 21 league appearances,[61]

On 6 June 2013, Gómez' consultant Uli Ferber announced that it "is quite clear that he will separate from Bayern" as he had fallen behind Mario Mandžukić in the pecking order for starting striker.[62]


On 8 July 2013, Gómez joined Serie A side Fiorentina by signing a four-year deal, for a fee believed to be around €20 million.[63][64] He was officially unveiled as a Fiorentina player on 15 July, to a crowd of 20,000 people.[65]

Gómez scored his first two goals for la Viola in a 5–2 defeat of Genoa on 1 September.[66] In the following match, a 1–1 draw with Cagliari, Gómez sustained an injury which kept him out of the team until Fiorentina's match against Internazionale on 15 February 2014.[67]

On 13 March, Gómez scored his first European goal for Fiorentina in a 1–1 draw against Juventus in the first leg of a UEFA Europa League round of 16 tie. Three days later, he scored his first goal at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in a 3–1 win against Chievo.[68]

On 23 March, he damaged the ligaments in his left knee in a 1–0 win at Napoli and was later ruled out for the remainder of the season by Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Montella.[69] During the 2013–14 season, he scored three goals in nine league appearances and one goal in six Europa League appearances.[14]

Gómez scored twice in Fiorentina's 3–1 win over Atalanta in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia on 21 January 2015,[70] and followed this up with another brace 13 days later in a 2–0 quarter-final win away to Roma.[71] He finished 2014–15 season with 4 goals in 20 league appearances, four goals in four Coppa Italia appearances and two goals in eight Europa League appearances.[14]

Loan to Beşiktaş

On 30 July 2015, Gómez joined Beşiktaş on a season long loan contract from Fiorentina for 2015–16 Süper Lig, with a buy option.[72][73] The contract consisted €3.50 million of seasonal wage.[74] He successfully completed a medical test on 31 July 2015.[75] Gómez officially signed in the club along with 4 other new players, including his compatriot Andreas Beck, at a press conference held on 7 August 2015.[76][77] He chose number 33 for his shirt.[78]

Substituted on Oğuzhan Özyakup at 73rd minute, Gómez had his Süper Lig debut on 16 August 2015 at week 1 encounter against Mersin İdman Yurdu at Mersin Arena which ended 52 in favour of Beşiktaş.[79] Gómez secured all two goals of week 4 game in which Beşiktaş beat Medipol Başakşehir at Atatürk Olympic Stadium on 13 September 2015.[80] On 21 September 2015, at week 5 game against Gençlerbirliği, Gómez reportedly escaped a red card narrowly although an alleged deliberate elbow on Icelandic midfielder Ólafur Ingi Skúlason at 55th minute.[81] On 27 September 2015, played at Atatürk Olympic Stadium, Gómez scored 1st and 3rd goals of Beşiktaş at derby game against Fenerbahçe where game ended 32 in favour of Beşiktaş and helped the team to top Süper Lig standings.[82]

Gómez scored twice and secured victory for Beşiktaş at week 7 game against Eskişehirspor at New Eskişehir Stadium, that ended 21 on 4 October 2015.[83] By end of week 7 of Süper Lig, scoring 6 goals at that stage, Gómez reached 50% shoot accuracy stats, sending 6 accurate shots of total 12.[84] Gómez scored the equaliser at week 3 of Group H game against Lokomotiv Moscow, ended 11 at Lokomotiv Stadium, Moscow, on 22 October 2015.[85] On 26 October 2015, Gómez scored 3rd goal against Antalyaspor at New Antalya Stadium, at week 9 game ended 51 for Beşiktaş.[86]

At week 12 game against Sivasspor in Istanbul, Gómez scored first goal of game on 44th minute via penalty kick where Beşiktaş beat their opponent 20, on 22 November 2015.[87]

On 5 December 2016, Gómez opened scoreboard on 12th minute, following assist of José Sosa at week 14 encounter against Kayserispor, ended 21 for Beşiktaş at Kadir Has Stadium, Kayseri.[88] On 10 December 2015, Gómez scored the only goal of Beşiktaş against Sporting at Europa League Group Stage week 6 encounter ended 31 for Portuguese side at Estádio José Alvalade, where Beşiktaş eventually were eliminated from the competition.[89] On 14 December 2015, Gómez scored first goal of Beşiktaş by a diving header in derby game against Galatasaray that ended 21 for Beşiktaş at Atatürk Olympic Stadium.[90] At week 16, Gómez opened scoring tally of Beşiktaş while they were 20 down against Osmanlıspor, which eventually ended 32 in favour of Beşiktaş at Osmanlı Stadium in Ankara, on 21 December 2015.[91] On 28 December 2015, Gómez scored 2nd goal of week 17 encounter against Konyaspor that ended 40 at Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium.[92] Being top scorer 13 goals along with Samuel Eto'o,[93] Gómez completed first half of the season with highest shooting accuracy, providing 29 shoots on target.[94] He also scored 2 goals at UEFA Europa League until the end of 2015.[95]

In Süper Lig week 20 game against Gaziantepspor, Gómez scored twice on 61st and 70th minutes when Beşiktaş achieved a comfortable 40 win on 7 February 2016.[96] Scoring on 64th minute, Gómez had the only goal scored on week 22 game against Gençlerbirliği and secured the 10 win for Beşiktaş, on 26 February 2016.[97] Gómez scored twice against Eskişehirspor at week 24 game on 7 March 2016, which ended 31 for Beşiktaş.[98][99] His tally lead him to reach 19 Süper Lig goals and thus equalised the "most scoring foreign player in single Süper Lig season" record of Beşiktaş, along with Pascal Nouma and Demba Ba.[100]

Beşiktaş and Trabzonspor faced each other on rescheduled week 19 game on 14 March 2016, in which Gómez scored the first goal of the two, on 76th minute, finally ended 20 in favour of Beşiktaş.[101] Gómez was the scorer of the first goal ever scored on newly built Vodafone Park, on 22nd minute of week 28 encounter against Bursaspor of 2015–16 season, ended 32 as well as the first ever win of the hosting side Beşiktaş at this stadium, on 11 April 2016.[102][103][104] This was his 21st goal of 2015–16 season.[105]

In May 2016, Gómez continued to produce goals. He scored once more at Istanbul derby versus Galatasaray at 76th minute which sealed the final score of 10 for Beşiktaş at Türk Telekom Stadium, on 8 May 2016 at week 32.[106] 15 May 2016, at match week 33, scoring in fifth consecutive Süper Lig games, Gómez converted another strike and made his last Süper Lig goal of the season against Osmanlıspor on 48th minute, the latter of 3 goals scored by Beşiktaş as the score of 31.[107] Thus, producing the 28th goal in all competitions, Gómez became the "most scoring foreign player across all competitions in single season", beating previous record of Demba Ba with 27 goals scored 2014–15 season.[108][109][110]

Gómez scored total of 26 goals at 2015–16 Süper Lig season and became top scorer ahead of Samuel Eto'o and Hugo Rodallega.[111][112] He completed the season with 28 goals in 41 games played in all competitions.[113] On 20 July 2016, Gómez announced his farewell message via his Facebook account that he will not continue to play for Beşiktaş following a personally described "difficult decision" on a political basis, which was perceived as a reference to 2016 coup d'état attempt in country.[114][115]

In 2016, Gómez expressed his satisfaction on his spell at Beşiktaş in an interview with German newspaper Die Welt, stating that: "Beşiktaş [spell] was a pure dream for me. It was wonderful. I had a consistent season there. It was my biggest success after 2013 Champions League title".[116][117]


On 17 August 2016, Gómez returned to the Bundesliga to sign for VfL Wolfsburg.[118] He scored his first goal for the club on 22 October, netting in a 3–1 defeat to Darmstadt 98. His goal was the 1,000th scored by Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.[119] On 2 April 2017, Gómez scored his first hat-trick for the club, netting three times in seven minutes as Wolfsburg came from 2–0 down to draw 3–3 with Bayer Leverkusen.[120] His third on the night was his 150th goal scored in the Bundesliga.[121] He ultimately scored 16 league goals for the season as Wolfsburg narrowly avoided relegation via the relegation play-offs.[122] He finished the 2016–17 season with 18 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions.[123]

After keeping his team in the top flight, Gómez signed a new contract in June 2017.[124] In August, manager Andries Jonker named him as captain, succeeding Diego Benaglio.[125] In his final half-season at the Volkswagen Arena, Gómez scored only once in 15 appearances.[126]

Return to VfB Stuttgart

On 22 December 2017, it was announced that Gómez will return to VfB Stuttgart on 1 January 2018.[127] The fee was undisclosed.[126] He signed a contract until June 2020.[128] He finished the 2017–18 season with Stuttgart eight goals in 16 appearances.[129]

Gómez was Stuttgart's top scorer with seven goals in 2018–19, adding one in the first leg of their play-off defeat to 1. FC Union Berlin that caused their relegation. With this, he became the first player to score for two teams in Bundesliga relegation play-offs.[130]

On 28 June 2020, Stuttgart announced that Gómez had ended his professional career, after scoring in his final match for the club and helping them secure promotion back to the Bundesliga.[131]

International career

Gómez playing for Germany in 2011

Gómez has both German and Spanish citizenship, but played for all German youth national teams from age 14. He made his debut for the Germany senior team against Switzerland on 7 February 2007 in Düsseldorf. Germany won the match 3–1, with Gómez scoring Germany's second goal.[132] Gómez gained his second cap for Germany, coming on as a substitute for Kevin Kurányi in a UEFA Euro 2008 qualifier against San Marino, scoring two goals that contributed to a final 6–0 victory.[133]

Euro 2008

After Gómez impressed in pre-tournament friendlies, Germany head coach Joachim Löw called him up to the German squad for Euro 2008.[134] Löw broke up the strike partnership of Lukas Podolski and Miroslav Klose, with Podolski moving out to the left wing at the expense of talismanic midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger and Gómez partnering Klose up front. Unfortunately, Gómez was not able to reproduce his club form and missed several clear-cut chances, including a crucial one in the last group match against Austria, a performance for which he was criticized by the German media and many fans of die Nationalmannschaft. Germany eventually won courtesy of a Michael Ballack free-kick to seal a place in the knockout stages, but Löw dropped Gómez to the bench and reverted to the Podolski–Klose partnership.[135] Gómez was an unused substitute in the quarter-final and semi-final and later came off the bench in the final of Euro 2008 for Klose, but could not prevent Germany from losing 1–0 to Spain on 29 June.[136]

2010 FIFA World Cup

In a friendly match against the United Arab Emirates played on 2 June 2009, Gómez scored four goals, ending his 15-game goal drought for the national team, in Germany's 7–2 victory.[137]

Gómez was named as one of the six forwards in Joachim Löw's 23-man squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.[138] He featured in four out of seven German matches at the World Cup, all from the substitutes' bench, against Australia, replacing Mesut Özil in the 73rd minute; Serbia, coming on for left back Holger Badstuber in the 77th minute; England, coming on for Miroslav Klose in the 72nd minute; and Spain, replacing defensive midfielder Sami Khedira in the 80th minute. However, Gómez again did not score a goal at a major tournament.[139]

Euro 2012

Gómez against Austria in a UEFA Euro 2012 qualification match

Although being the second choice behind Miroslav Klose as centre-forward during Germany's qualification for Euro 2012, Gómez played regularly and contributed goals against every opponent of that campaign: Kazakhstan, Austria, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Belgium. This included two goals against Austria in Germany's 2–1 away win in the Ernst-Happel-Stadion, scoring into the very same goal in which he had been unable to score four years earlier during Euro 2008. In a spontaneous gesture of relief, he kissed the goalpost after he scored the first goal.[140]

Prior to Euro 2012, Gómez captained Germany for the first time in a 3–3 draw against Ukraine in the first match at the renovated Olympic Stadion of Kiev.[141] It was his 50th international cap, and aged 26, he was Germany's oldest player in the starting lineup.[142]

Gómez scored the only, and winning, goal against Portugal in their first group match at Euro 2012.[143] He then scored twice against the Netherlands in Germany's second Group B match, making it three goals in two matches.[144] In the end, he became second-best scorer of the tournament, behind Spain's Fernando Torres. Both had three goals and one assist, however Torres became top scorer of the tournament because he played fewer minutes than Gómez.[145]

2014 FIFA World Cup

After missing the majority of the 2013–14 season with a knee injury, Gómez was not included in Joachim Löw's squad for the 2014 World Cup.[146]

UEFA Euro 2016

Gómez was excluded from national team squad for UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying Group D encounters against Ireland and Georgia.[147] His performance at first half of 2015–16 Süper Lig lead Gómez to be recalled to national team,[148] for the first time after the international friendly held against Argentina on 4 September 2014,[149] that he was recalled to the Germany squad for friendlies against France and the Netherlands in November 2015.[150] He scored his first international goal in four years in a 2–3 loss to England in Berlin on 26 March 2016.[151]

On 21 June 2016, Gómez was selected to start in Germany's final Euro 2016 group match against Northern Ireland, scoring the winning goal in the 30th minute.[152] On 26 June 2016, Gómez scored in the 43rd minute in Germany's Round of 16 3–0 win against Slovakia, becoming Germany's all-time leading scorer at the UEFA European Championship with five goals.[153]

2018 FIFA World Cup

Gómez with Germany in 2018

On 4 June 2018, Gómez was selected in Joachim Löw's final 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.[154] He made his appearance in the 79th minute by coming in for Marvin Plattenhardt during their opening match against Mexico, but the game ended in a 1–0 loss for Germany.[155] On 24 June, Gómez provided an assist to Marco Reus' equalizing goal with his first touch of the match after coming on as a substitute in the second half in a 2–1 victory over Sweden during the second group stage match.[156] On 5 August, he announced his retirement from international football.[157]

Style of play

During his prime, Gómez was considered one of the best strikers in world football.[158] Throughout his career, Gómez was known for his ability to shoot with both feet and was considered to be an aerial threat. Additionally, his ability to anticipate crosses and passes, and position himself to shoot were considered to be some of his best attributes. Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger described him as "a great finisher who is often in the right place to finish off moves".[159] Moreover, Gómez's body balance and ability to hold up the ball often created trouble for defenders. During his time at Bayern, his ability to appear "at the right place at the right time" proved to be one of Bayern's most lethal attacking weapons as Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben could often outrun defenders and provide a cross for Gómez. However, despite his goal-scoring abilities, Gómez was often accused of having limited skills and a poor work ethic.[160][161]
