Gomez hits out at critics
Germany and Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has hit back at recent criticism from former Germany midfielder Mehmet Scholl.
Gomez scored the only goal in Germany's win over Portugal in their Euro 2012 opener, but Scholl believes the striker needs to improve his work rate. Scholl said: "I have seen him run more (than against Portugal), but seldom less. If he did much, much more work, he would get even more chances and score more goals." However, Gomez feels his goalscoring record speaks for itself and sees no reason why he should make any changes to his style of play. When asked about the comments at a press conference on Monday, the Bayern striker said: "I have been the most successful striker in Germany over the last five or six years, have after (Lionel) Messi scored the most goals in the Champions League. "I would like to know why I should change."
