Palma de Mallorca (AP) - With a wedding photo from Mallorca, the football world champion Mario Götze (27) and his wife Ann-Kathrin have delighted hundreds of thousands of fans.
The German "Vogue" also published online several pictures of the preparations and quoted the bride: The holiday island of Mallorca chose the couple for the celebration, "because we are engaged there."
"Mario asked me in June 2016 on a roof terrace in Palma, if I would like to marry him and therefore we want to marry there as well. We often fly to Majorca to take our time off from our daily routine. In addition, the island has so much nature to offer and my parents have lived there for years. We could not think of another place with which we share so many beautiful memories. "
Earlier, RTL.de and «Bild» had already reported on the wedding on Mallorca. In Spain, the newspaper "Ultima Hora" reported that among the guests in Son Marroig at Deia in the northwest of the island were several football professionals such as Marc Bartra, Thiago Alcántara, Manuel Neuer and André Schürrle. The festival took place under the strictest safety precautions. Security guards are said to have bothered photographers in exaggerated ways.
Hundreds of thousands of fans of the couple had the kiss photo of the couple shortly after its publication on Instagram. Götze and his Ann-Kathrin (formerly Brömmel) were married in May 2018. According to the RTL report, the couple already wanted to celebrate the wedding last summer. However, the planned festival fell on the date of the training camp of Götzes club Borussia Dortmund.
The couple has been together since 2012 and was engaged since the summer of 2017. At the 2014 World Cup Götze had scored the 1: 0 winner for Germany in the final against Argentina. He is currently playing for Borussia Dortmund. In 2013 he moved to Bayern. In 2016 he returned to Dortmund. However, his debut was difficult because of the fan criticism, added to a metabolic disease.
