Borussia Dortmund star Mario Goetze has returned to team training, giving the Bundesliga leader a boost ahead of potentially decisive matches for the championship.

The 19-year-old Goetze says ''it's great to be back'' and reports no medical problems. He last played in December before being sidelined by a pubic bone injury.

Goetze extended his contract last week until 2016.

Dortmund plays at Wolfsburg on Saturday and then hosts Bayern Munich next week. The defending champion is three points ahead of Bayern.
